Durham, North Carolina (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
Scott Harris, a painter and sculptor in Greensboro, North Carolina, has been chosen to design the cow sculpture sponsored by the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin for CowParade North Carolina 2012, which will benefit North Carolina Children’s Hospital.
CowParade features life-sized cow sculptures painted and transformed by local artists. The cows are delivered as blank canvases, and the artists are allowed to paint them and manipulate them as they like to create a unique sculpture.
Harris is one of several local artists chosen to create more than 80 cow sculptures for CowParade North Carolina 2012.
Harris is the owner of Harris Design Studios in Greensboro. He works primarily as an aluminum artist and sculptor, and he particularly enjoys “creating imagery that exhibits the contrast between a warm, organic image on a cold, industrial surface.”
Harris has completed many personal and corporate commissions, and his work is featured in galleries in Georgia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.
Harris and the firm initially discussed a general concept for the cow design, which resulted in the cow now named “The Dreamer.” Harris’s experience with aluminum seeded the design concept: a juxtaposition of agriculture and industry.
“There was something fun about the idea of the cow using industrial metal for art to get back to the country,” Harris said.
“This is such a fun way to support such a worthy organization,” said Patent Attorney Tara Williams, who heads the firm’s social-services committee. “We have enjoyed working with Scott, who is such a talented and genuine person. We are excited for everyone to see our cow ‘The Dreamer,’ and see Scott’s work.”
Harris’ cow sculpture will be unveiled with the others at a special Round Up event on August 18. The cows will then go “on parade” starting Sunday, August 19, and will be on display through the first week of December.
At the conclusion of CowParade, the cow masterpieces are sold at auction for the benefit of local non-profit organizations. The cows from the Triangle exhibition will be auctioned at a gala on January 26 to raise money for North Carolina Children’s Hospital, the exclusive beneficiary of the CowParade North Carolina 2012.
