About Arthur Norby

My career in the arts spans more than forty years. In that span of time, I’ve developed a mastery in engraving, jewelry design, sculpture and painting. In 2013, I published THE DEADLY WINTER, a popular historic novel set in rural Minnesota.

My first sculptures were created in 1979, with my first collection of bronzes being created in 1980 and 1981.  I have created over 600 sculptures in a variety of subjects, including more than 15 large scale/public bronzes. My first monumental public sculptures were created for Trenton, New Jersey in 1991 and Windom, Minnesota in 1993.  In 1996 I was chosen through a national call for proposals to design the Minnesota Korean War Veterans Memorial which was dedicated in September of 1998.

From 1996 through 2007 I resided in Arizona, operated The Norby Gallery and through the competitive process was commissioned to create six heroic public bronzes, as well as two sculpture gardens which encompassed eight life-size bronzes, seven life-size portrait busts and numerous other commissions.  In 2006 I was awarded a one-person exhibit of paintings and sculpture by the West Valley Art Museum, Surprise, Arizona.  In 2008 I presented a retrospective exhibit of sculpture and paintings for the Ravalli County Museum, Hamilton, Montana.

Throughout my career I have attended workshops and taught studio techniques, as well as having taken part in school residencies at several grade levels. In 2007 I retired from gallery activities to concentrate more intensively on my own artwork.
