Denise Auger began her career as a Fine Arts painter before life and her love of metals brought her to the jewelry industry, where she has worked as a designer, wax carver and silversmith. In 2000, she pursued her interest in bronze sculpture, becoming a conservation specialist and artist in residence at Paul King Foundry in Johnston RI.
Currently Denise lives and works in Foster RI. She continues to sculpt, and design and produce jewelry. Among others, Auger has worked creatively for Disney, Timberland and Eddie Bauer, and completed projects for The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and The Smithsonian.
Based in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, sculptor Roberto Bessin has been represented by Sheldon Fine Art for well over a decade. Bessin is known internationally for his bird sculptures - his first larger than life heron was the first piece of art to ever be declared a building, and zoned as such, forever impacting the conversation around installation art. Since then, Bessin has worked extensively in Japan, New York, and of course, Rhode Island.
