bud-framed-printWednesday, September 28th and Thursday, September 29th will be Bud Chapman Day with the artist at Griffin Gallery, personally signing single prints. When renowned sculptor Mack first viewed fellow artist Bud Chapman’s Victoria Falls Hole # 1” painting, he described it as “fabulous, unbelievable detail, and a watercolor masterpiece.”

 Mack added that his description was not an exaggeration, especially since watercolors can be difficult to work with, and reason that he does not dabble in watercolors. A well-known sculptor, Mack has created several life-sized cast bronze sculptures that appear in several sport hall of fames, as well as at the Hazeltine Club and Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins.  Mack has also been commissioned for Ryder Cup sculptures that will be available at the Merchandise Tent, as well as Griffin Gallery.
