HI, My name is Gerard J. Kelly.
I am a sculptor, living and working in Newfoundland, Canada.
I have long been fascinated by archeology, and mythology, even
before I seriously started to study art. I have now been making
art for 20 years. I am working in the Fine Arts Dept. of Memorial
University of Newfoundland, as Sculpture Technician. Last year
I had an exhibit entitled "In The Temple of The Goddess",
at the Arts and Culture Center in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
I have read books by Gimbutas, and Joseph Campbell, and drawn
inspiration from them. This summer I am exhibiting at a gallery
called Artspace in Nova Scotia, Canada. This exhibit is called,
"Conversations with the Goddess", and is also influenced
by the writings of Gimbutas. If you would like to know more about
my work, see images, or have a written article submitted to your
page, please get in touch. Thank you, Gerard Visit my web site
