Meet Our Featured Member - Richard Dyer
Two three-day art shows and a two-day reptile and amphibian show he planned to sell at in 2020 were canceled because of the pandemic, but Richard Dyer has not slowed producing artworks. One recent series of wall sculptures (Faces of 2020) was inspired by the year’s news of COVID-19.
Richard was born in and grew up in California. He has a B.S. and an M.A. from the University of Arizona in Tucson.
Richard is a newspaper journalist by day. He started out as a copy editor for the Apache Junction Independent.
He has worked for Independent Newspapers (now known as Independent Newsmedia Inc. USA) since August, 1987. He works online and print both daily and monthly for the Apache Junction/Gold Canyon Independent and online daily Mesa Independent,
Richard is also co-editor of The Blue Guitar Magazine, The Blue Guitar Jr. Magazine and Unstrung literary and art magazine (www.theblueguitarmagazine.org)
The intricate textures of his welded works involve a technique he has perfected over years of welding.
Richard uses oxyacetylene (steel and brazing rods), MIG (metal inert gas) and arc (stick) welding to design unique sculptures. He also uses plasma and oxyacetylene tools to cut steel.
Congratulations to Richard and his wife, Rebecca, who recently celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary
Richard joined the Mesa Art League in February 2014.
Richard is a great example in showing not all the Mesa Art League members are 2 dimensional artists, but many demonstrate skill and talents in creative 3dimensional media.
Our Members are a diverse
group of Artists.
They range from professionals to amateurs, art teachers to beginners.
Our members create 2 dimensional art,
as well as, 3 dimensional art,
with media ranging from oil to inks,
glass to jewelry, ceramic to porcelain, metal art and so much more!
