Jon Koppel - Swarm

The Mankiw Family Gallery is pleased to announce the show “Swarm”, comprised of artwork by local Boston area sculptor Jon Koppel, taking place February 22nd- April 28th, 2018. The opening reception with the artist will be held on Thursday, February 22rd, 2018 from 6:00-7:00 PM.

Jon graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design (MassArt) with a BFA in Sculpture. His skill set includes Foundry (casting iron, bronze, & aluminum), Steel Fabrication, Woodworking, Ceramics, Printmaking, Silver & Coppersmithing, & Warm Glass Techniques (casting, fusing, & slumping). One of his many accomplishments includes being the Founder and former Head of the MassArt Iron Corps. Since college, he has been the head of the sculpture shop at Buck’s Rock Performing and Creative Arts Camp and Art Technician at Brandeis University. In December, Jon graduated with his Masters in Art Education from MassArt with the goal of teaching art to high school students. He has also become an adjunct professor at Mass Art where he teaches foundry.

Jon is enthralled by the natural world and the discovery, collection, study, and display of odd specimens. His work references the Victorian cabinets of curiosities and the awe that we continue to feel when we encounter previously unknown life forms in museums and zoos. He hopes to evoke the intrigue of creatures strange and alien, both natural and hypothetical.

This spring Jon will be installing a large scale steel sculpture that will be unveiled during the Barn Campaign Event on April 13th. The sculpture will be a large mobile with birds floating throughout. He came up with this concept by being taken by the teeming avian wildlife on the Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall campus, the ducks, the geese, and most notably, the herons.
