Eric David Laxman
Eric Laxman took his first small steps to becoming an artist at RoCA where he studied clay sculpture and ceramics from the age of eight through his teen years. After earning a BS in Chemistry at Tufts University, he decided to follow his passion and enrolled in the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Today, Eric is an accomplished sculptor, furniture designer and fabricator whose work has been widely exhibited. He has won prestigious public and private commissions in Ohio, Connecticut and New Jersey. Eric’s work has been featured in The New York Times and a host of design publications.
In the late 1980’s, Ted Ludwiczak, a native of Poland, moved to a small cottage perched on a cliff by the Hudson River. There he hauled rocks out of the river and taught himself how to carve them. With his tools and imagination, he coaxed distinctive faces from each stone. Today, Ted’s highly collectable stone head carvings ranging in size from 6” to 4’ create a fascinating environment on his property. They can be seen clustered beneath the trees in RoCA’s Catherine Konner Sculpture Park, at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore and at the Museum of American Folk Art in NYC.
First Niagara Bank
We are pleased to honor First Niagara Bank, which through its philanthropic arm, the First Niagara Bank Foundation, has demonstrated their commitment to building strong communities in the locations they serve. Their generous grant awarded to RoCA in collaboration with Rockland 21C, will bring an inspired series of intergenerational Family Art Workshops to Family Resource Centers in six school districts in 2012-2013.
