"The Weight," sculpture by Grey Brogdon

by Alec Clayton for OLY ARTS

Grey Brogdon has traveled extensively and lived abroad for more than 11 years. He says he finds joy throughout the creative process, from the discovery of found items to the fabrication, casting, building, renovation, painting, drawing and designing of original works.

Brogdon majored in art at Oklahoma State University with a focus on oils and sculpture. He lives in Olympia in the Italian-inspired home he built with his wife, Rachel; daughter, Denali; labradoodle, Joey; and two Bengal kittens.

His recycled-steel sculpture “The Weight,” which he’ll show for Arts Walk, represents “the destructive weight that attacks society’s foundation.”
