Past Artist In Residence
Jon Tarry is an Australian artist who specializes in 3-D sculpture and architecture, including the design and production of large-scale public sculpture and memorials. After beginning his residency at 18th Street in 2004, through the Australia Council for the Arts, Tarry shared a wealth of experience in both his lectures about art as well as his construction of large scale 3-D sculptural works. At a juncture where there is an increasing interest in memorial and other public art projects, Tarry’s perspective on working in these forms were valuable to local artists who are interested in pursuing public art commissions, designing and constructing memorial art, and also creating large sculptures for museums or gallery settings. Tarry currently lives and works in Australia.
