As a gesture of expressing gratitude to all the artists that have employed its services over the past 34 years; the Vector Custom fabricating organized an event: Pig Roast and Carnival of Fire. Vector is an artist owned and operated company specializing in fabrication of sculpture. Along with Pig Roast and Fire Carnival was an exhibit of small scale sculptures.
THE EXHIBIT of small-scale sculptures: The sculptures in this exhibit is by artists who have employed the services of Vector and the artists who provide those services on behalf of Vector. On a regular basis over the past 34 years these two groups of artists have collaborated to make sculpture that has required their mutual efforts. The only exceptions are Professor Gary freeman who inspired the founders of Vector with the potential of fabricated metals at the John Herron School of Art; and Professor Roger Blakely, an artist they admire who was central to their graduate experience at the University of Illinois. Vector Custom Fabricating, Inc. is taking the occasion of the ISC Conference in Chicago 2012 to express it’s gratitude to all the artists that have made its long history of making art possible.
