Conrad Levenson has been an assemblage artist for over forty-five years. Applying his passion for reclamation and recycling to the creation of sculpture, he takes scrap materials and old objects and transforms them into works of art. In the process, he strives to identify and capture their embedded energy, spirit, and character, giving each one new form and meaning in a voice that is uniquely his own.
His studio is located in the Hudson Valley Town of Stanford, New York. It is a rural community that provides both inspiration and access to artifacts and decaying materials, weathered and rusted, ripe for transformation. The property includes a workshop and a two-acre garden, where he has created spaces and settings for the display of his sculptures. His works connect the built environment and natural landscape and provide both visual and cultural bridges between the past and the present.
He is a member of the International Sculpture Center, the Sculptors Guild, Westport Arts Center, Arts Mid-Hudson, Barrett Art Center and the Red Hook Community Arts Network. His works are in private collections across the country and regularly exhibited throughout the region with the Sculptors Guild, at their Gallery, and on Governors Island; the Sculpture Expos in Red Hook, New York; Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds, in Old Lyme, Connecticut; the Red Devon in Bangall, New York; the Ice House on the Hudson in Poughkeepsie, New York; and the McDaris Gallery in Hudson, New York
