About the Artist

              

           

 

     James Daniel Mellick was born in Mansfield, Ohio in 1947. He earned the most advanced studio degree, the Master of Fine Arts, at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville in 1973.

            

     At the age of 26, he taught sculpture, printmaking, drawing and design at Colby-Sawyer College in New Hampshire while exhibiting extensively in the Northeast from 1973 through 1978.

            

     From 1989 to 1981, Jim founded the art major program at Houghton College in Western New York. There he taught sculpture, painting, drawing and art history.

 

      At the end of 1981, he left academe to develop his work as a full-time sculptor in Columbus, Ohio, where he became a regular artist of the late Renee Steidle of Gallery 200, Inc. His 1983 solo exhibition at Gallery 200 was his first commercial show in a larger city and firmly established his reputation in Central Ohio.

 

     James Mellick continues to teach as a mentor through his beliefs and actions. Occasionally, he returns to formal teaching.  He was invited to teach sculpture at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan from 1989 through 1991 and recently taught wood sculpture at the Penland School of Crafts in the mountains of North Carolina.

 

     Today, Jim is represented by galleries in Columbus, Toledo, Chicago and New York City. His images have been published in textbooks and magazines with a national and international audience.

 

     In conjunction with his Columbus gallery, Vetro Marmo Arte, Mellick prepared an exhibit for the prestigious “Sculptural Objects and Functional Art” Exposition at the Navy Pier in Chicago during the last week of October, 1996. Galleries from around the world displayed their best artists in this venue.
