Bruce Turnbull - United States
Art Brokerage: Bruce Turnbull, for the better part of two decades, has lived and worked just a few miles from the rural village of Kahakuloa on Maui's rugged northeastern coast. It is the perfect setting for this Master Sculptor who takes his cues from nature and all things peaceful. Turnbull's "dream" comes into focus in his sculpture garden. The land is, in fact, an ancient Hawaiian garden; the old stone walls almost hidden but still standing. Turnbull moved to Maui in 1968, returning to San Jose State University in 1970 to study under renowned American sculptor Wendell Gates The following year, Turnbull earned his Master's degree in Fine Arts, and his master's project · a dramatic bronze sculptor of a gymnast · today graces the government building in Wailuku, Maui's county seat. It was during the time he returned to San Jose for his master's degree that Turnbull gathered the confidence one needs to make a living from art. And much of that confidence came from his teacher, Wendell Gates, who remained his advisor even after he had retired from teaching and Turnbull had returned to Maui.
