Gallery KH Artist D.E. McDermott Sculpture Selected for Global Humanitarian Prize


Gallery KH is proud to announce a sculpture by artist D.E. McDermott has been selected to honor those committed to advancing women’s rights in Barbados, Mexico and South Africa.

Chicago, IL, June 26, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The limited edition bronze sculpture, ‘Reflections’ was selected by the Global Summit of Women 2008 for its Award Presentation Ceremonies in Hanoi Vietnam. Three of the sculptures were presented as the ‘Best Practices Award’ and were given to the Ministers of Barbados, Mexico and South Africa for their outstanding achievements in public and private partnerships advancing women and girls.

Beginning his sculptural career in 1986, Brooklyn native McDermott’s work has been included in collections throughout the world. Largely self-taught, one of his earliest artistic influences was animal sculptor, Anna Hyatt Huntington. Prominent among his formal studies was his work with the California sculptor and teacher, Richard Miller. After working for several years in Spain, McDermott moved to California where his sculpting style emerged. Currently the artist resides in Virginia and shows locally at Gallery KH in Chicago.

Located in the heart of the River North Arts District, Gallery KH presents an outstanding collection of significant contemporary artists working in a variety of styles and media. For further information, please visit www.gallerykh.com or call 1-312-642-0202.
