This month in the Maurice Del Mue Gallery at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center we’re hosting an impressive retrospective (works from 1960 to 2013) of the work of sculptor Jack Kamesar.
Jack Kamesar studied fine art and architecture at UC Berkeley, where he first discovered his passion for sculpture.

Here are a few from the exhibit:
|Studies for sculptural projects|
His interest in the human figure lead him to an intensive study of anatomy at UCSF. He dissected a cadaver and produced highly detailed anatomical drawings which took many months to complete).
After studying at Berekely, he lived and studied in Italy for two years where he worked in sculpture studios and bronze foundries.

I’ll post more photos from the reception in the near future.
