Gerry Phelan is a wood sculptor

 His work stands in the West Point Military Academy, Cornell, Helen Hayes Hospital and in many New York libraries and hospitals.  He has also been featured in an auction at Gurnsey's 5th Avenue in New York City.  He sculpts from wood, life-sized animals, many of which are endangered species, Native Americans and even dinosaurs.

Current Shows

I am in my studio working feverishly and am not showing currently.

However, you can go to this TV show to get a sense of what I do:

My Story

I began sculpting 35 years ago.  After many years of working with metals in industry, I found working with wood calming and rewarding.  Pretty quickly, people began to take an interest in my work, then buying it and commissioning me to do specific pieces. Then came the shows in galleries, libraries and requests for sculptures from well known organizations and sites.   Now I sculpt works that support wildlife awareness, are meaningful to owners of pets that have passed away or are of historical nature -- such as Native American's.  I sculpt full time now and find it challenging to keep up with the requests, but If you are interested in my work, or have an idea that you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact me via this website.

"Wood has will -- a spirit that you have to work with on it's own terms."
