b.1948 - 2021

Kent Talmage-Bowers was a native of Denver, Colorado where he lived and worked. He studied etching and printmaking in Massachusetts before establishing his own studio in Denver. The style and subjects of his etchings are varied, ranging from the traditional to experimental. In the last few years he concentrated upon American city landscapes and portraits of literary, artistic, historical and sports personalities. Kent worked almost exclusively in the dry point method as it gives the richest tones and a subtle impressionist texture.

Kent Talmage-Bowers had a long teaching career in the Denver area. He taught English, social studies, humanities and alternative education at Northglenn High School for 29 years, 12 of which he was department chair. Talmage-Bowers supervised interns in education at the University of Colorado Denver and Metropolitan State College of Denver. He was on the faculty of Front Range Community College and was in his seventh year at the Community College of Aurora in the Departments of Arts and Humanities and English as a Second Language. Talmage-Bowers wrote poetry and was a practicing artist specializing in etching, with a particular interest in urban landscapes. He was a graduate of Colgate University and held a master’s degree from Brown University.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
