A new life, a new start, a new art: Sculptor Destiny Allison’s new book about finding identity through art

We are pleased to welcome famed artist Destiny Allison to the gallery

Book signing/sculpture exhibit on April 21, 2012.

We are thrilled to be a part of Destiny’s book release tour. Destiny unveiled this book in Santa Fe a little over a month ago, with much critical acclaim. Now she will be our guest at the gallery April 21st, reading from her book and signing copies for attendees.

Shaping Destiny CoverAbout the book, Shaping Destiny

Without giving too much away, Shaping Destiny is the story of how Destiny Allison came to be the renowned artist she is today.

It describes her trials and tribulations along the path of finding herself through her art. In her focused, cathartic moments of sculpting she would discover things about herself she had not known previously.

Shaping Destiny is also a story of perseverance. Never having been “formally” trained by an art institution, Destiny acquired all her sculpting knowledge through forceful exploration and pursuing experts in the field. Her success today provides proof for the methods and techniques she describes in the pages of this story.

This book is more than just a memoir. Every chapter also offers a concrete art lesson to educate the reader as well as entertain. This format allows the book to not only be an enthralling story, but also maintain its educational purposes.

About the April 21st event at our gallery

Destiny will be in our Tubac gallery showroom at 4pm on Saturday, April 21st. She will be reading excerpts from her book, followed by a discussion and Q&A. Her visit is a great opportunity for you to directly interface with an established artist and an up-and-coming author.

If you already have a copy of the book, bring it so you can get it signed!

After the discussion and signing, there will be a wine and cheese reception held at the gallery. The artist will be on hand to discuss the new sculpture we will have for sale.

About the artist

Destiny Allison has been working with bronze, stone, and steel for the past 18 years.

She is a native of Santa Fe, New Mexico.  As a young adult, Destiny lived and studied in Washington, D.C. and Boston, returning  to Santa Fe in 1998.

Destiny first fell in love with sculpting while playing with her son’s modeling clay during a moment of writer’s block and domestic frustration — an important moment described in Shaping Destiny.
