We are saddened to learn of past National Sculptors' Guild member, and friend, Ron Chapel's death. Our deepest sympathy goes to Vanessa, his family and friends.
Images show some of the projects we were fortunate to have created and placed with Chapel. He left a beautiful impression on the world through his art; he was a genuine person who loved nature. He will be missed. #ChapelBronze #ChapelSculpture #RonChapel
We had some fun with the Bernie meme and our public art placements, he's so good to have played along with the nation in celebrating his love of repurposed materials and practicality when it comes to fashion.
After checking out the renowned National Sculptors' Guild sculpture garden, Bernie set off to see our placements throughout the nation.
Bernie loved seeing some of our sculpture placements in Downey, California. his favorites were Clay Enoch’s Tree of Life, Jane DeDecker’s From a Different Perspective, Carol Gold’s Infinite Dance
Bernie checking out our most recent Colorado sculpture placements, Wayne Salge’s Really?!, and Daniel Glanz’s Leaps and Bounds.
Bernie made it to see some of our public art placements in Southlake, Texas too.
Kathi Caricof’s Texas Stars, Gary Alsum’s Saluting a Hero, Jane DeDecker’s Burro Trio, and Michael Warrick’s Mockingbird Tree.
Onto Little Rock, Arkansas where Bernie saw just a handful of our dozens of sculpture placements. A highlight was the Arkansas Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Tribute by Jane DeDecker.
Other pictured public art are Stephen Shachtman’s Arkansas A, DeDecker and Kinkade’s In the Wings, Denny Haskew’s Native Knowledge, DeDecker’s Harriet Tubman, Sandy Scott’s Presidential Eagle, Kathleen Caricof’s Stars and Stripes, DeDecker’s Touch the Sky, Scott’s River Market Pig, and Tim Cherry’s Rabbit Reach in front of Mark Leichliter’s Together.

JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
