TIM CHERRY

Tim produces sculptures which not only attract the viewers eye but also the viewers hand. Born in Calgary, Alberta in 1965, Tim grew up in Nelson, a town located among the rugged Canadian Rockies in southeastern British Columbia. This is where he developed a love of wildlife and the outdoors. Escaping into the wilds was then, and still is, a spiritual experience. At sixteen Tim began working summers as a cook and wrangler for a hunting outfit, which took him into the wilderness country of northern British Columbia.

At the age of twenty- five he gained membership in the Society of Animal Artists and five years later at only thirty, he was elected to membership in the National Sculpture Society and also the National Sculptors Guild. Tim produces sculptures which bring pleasure to his clients and grace homes, offices and public places both nationally and internationally. He is also a sought after contributor to major exhibitions throughout the United States. In 2001, Tim received the James Earl Fraser Sculpture Award, presented annually for the sculpture exhibiting exception merit as deemed by the National Cowboy and Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City during the Prix de West Invitational for the sculpture “Snake in the Grass.” Tim also received in 2001 the prestigious Bronze Medal from the National Sculpture Society for “Rivers Run.” Tim’s sculpture can be found in a handful of galleries across the continent in collectors homes internationally and gracing the pages of Southwest Art, Wildlife Art and Art of the West magazines.
