Featured Artist for August at Art Gallery of Viera -- Walt Mendenhall

 Walt Mendenhall graduated from Oregon State University in 1968. After a tour in the Air Force as an instructor pilot, he returned to the family farm in Willamina Oregon, where he created metal sculptures for over 30 years. He has recently moved to Cocoa Florida and continues to create his metal sculptures with new emphasis on tropical designs, and many of the different types of animal and insect life in more whimsical form. 

  He is a self-taught sculptor, drawing on his natural surroundings for inspiration, creating both realistic nature scenes and abstract designs. Walt works with copper, stainless steel, bronze and steel, often combining the different metals and using their natural and heated colors to create beautiful works in metal.

  Walt is well known for the detail and life he puts into each sculpture. He has shown throughout the US and has works in several countries as well. Walt continues to do custom order pieces of all sizes. Mendenhall Studio can be found on the web @, email is
