Artist Bio

Richard Zandler creates figurative sculpture in a variety of media (bronze, steel stainless steel, aluminum, stone, wood, clay, plaster and plastics). He is best known for his public commissions of large-scale wire sculptures (seven as of 2018). He also created four monumental bronze relief sculptures for public spaces. His smaller scale work is represented in many private and university collections.

Zandler’s imagery relates to history, psychology, social commentary, philosophy and mythology, often with a hint of irony or humor. He also creates portraits, including one of Dr. Benjamin Spock.

Zandler has exhibited his sculpture extensively, including at the National Museum of Art in Rio de Janeiro, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the Baltimore Museum of Art, American University, as well as solo shows at Hood College, University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Bowie State University.

Zandler has taught undergraduate courses at the Philadelphia College of Art, Bowie State University, and Anne Arundel Community College. He taught graduate courses at the University of Pennsylvania and Hood College. Zandler was the director and principal sculpture instructor of the Montpelier Arts Center from 1979-2010.
