The Artist: Unique Sculptor & Philosopher
Ken Law was born in 1948 in Belton, Texas. His mother was an artist and his sister is an artist in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was enrolled in his first art lessons at age 6 and has always had a lifetime interest in art. He attended The University of Texas and Baylor Law School, becoming a lawyer and a judge, and is primarily self-taught in art.
In 2008, he took his first art welding and metal sculpting courses from Austin Community College where he pursued a Certificate in Art Welding. One of his instructors said about Ken:
“Ken has the rare ability to see beyond the subject material and create images hiding within. He employs found objects, such as common household utensils, forming dynamic sculptures that have movement and life. His passion for the work shows in his sculptures. He was a superior student and is an inventive talent.”
Most of Ken’s work has been sold directly, but he has worked through galleries in Austin and Lubbock. Currently his work is displayed at THE MARTA STAFFORD FINE ART GALLERY in Marble Falls, Texas. His work was recently featured on the TV series The Texas Country Reporter.
He is an active member of the TEXAS SOCIETY OF SCULPTORS. He serves as a member of the Board of Directors and is former Chair of the Exhibitions Committee. In 2019, he was elected PRESIDENT for a two year term.
At the 11th Annual TSOS/Georgetown Library Summer Sculpture Exhibit, Ken was awarded the Librarian’s Choice” Award for his found object sculpture, “HOOTIE BLOWFISH”; and “First Place” for another sculpture entitled ”BILL GROGAN’S GOAT”. At the same contest in 2019, he won the “People’s Choice” Award for his sculpture “SHUMLA”.
He is married to Carol, a retired teacher. They have a son, Boone Law, of Kangaroo Island, South Australia, a daughter, Julie Delafield, of Waco, Texas and a granddaughter, Kiva, also of South Australia.
