Sculptor Leo Osborne releases "Tommy Turtle" - Receives honor from Society of Animal Artists
Leo E. Osborne, whose sculpture "Return of Ancient Wisdom" was dedicated at the Rockport Center for the Arts' Sculpture Garden last April, has released the original piece carved from burl wood. It is an exceptional work of sculpture and is now available for purchase.

Osborne was recently named a Master Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists, an honor held by a select few of the nation's most prominent artists, including Kent Ullberg, whose "Rites of Spring" was the inaugural dedication of RCA's Sculpture Garden in 2000.

Much of Osborne's personal collection, including the burl wood sculpture, is now available along with the artist's Milkwood Studio Estate. For more information, contact the Art Center at 361-729-5519.
