2019 art sale and exhibition
Bob Guelich's love and respect for nature are evident when viewing one of his sculptures. Self-taught, Guelich became attracted to the medium of sculpture because he found that working three-dimensionally better suited his creativity and love for animals. Birds and mammals are his favorite subjects. Studying the subject in its natural habitat is a major part of each work, with the result Guelich is able to transfer the precision of the biological into a complete artistic impression.
Guelich is a fellow of the National Sculpture Society, and he has received that organization's gold and silver medals in annual exhibitions. He has also won the Award of Excellence medal and many other awards from the Society of Animal Arts. Guelich's sculptures have been placed in the Kansas City Zoo; the Fort Worth Botanical Garden; the Frederik Meijer Garden and Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids, Michigan; Benson Sculpture Park, Loveland, Colorado; Rice University; University of Notre Dame; the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum, Oradell, New Jersey Doane College; and the Mayo Foundation, Rochester, Minnesota. Other monumental commissions include works for the San Antonio, Omaha and Houston Zoo.
This year Guelich is installing a monumental ram at Angelo State College.
