Wayne Salge

The historic tradition of cast bronze provides a contemporary avenue for the execution of

Wayne Salge’s abstracted human and animal figures. In his world, “less is more” perfectly

describes his goal of emphasizing an attitude or mood for his subjects and allowing the viewer

Wayne Salge was born and raised in San Antonio, TX where his early education included classes

in art history, painting and sculpture followed by workshops in bronze casting and stone

carving. His work history includes butcher, television art director and Army illustrator with residences in TX, MA, Viet Nam and Washington, DC. Relocating to CO in 1970, he worked as a graphic designer/illustrator for 28 years.

exhibited in juried and invitational shows and galleries nationwide with multiple public pieces

installed in AR, CA, CO, FL, OK and SC. Salge is an elected
