Bronze Sculptor, Renate Burgyan Fackler

By communicating through both figurative and abstract sculpture, Renate strives to engage her audience in an emotionally intimate expression of life. Although a graduate of The Ohio State University School of Journalism, Renate believes the visual and tactile impact of sculpture on the psyche supersedes the written word.

Renate has over 30 years of experience in all phases of the bronze casting process. She has studied at The Columbus College of Art and Design; Johnson’s Atelier, Columbia University, and with patina expert, Ron Young owner of Sculpt Nouveau.

Through the Greater Columbus Arts Council Artist-in-Schools program, Renate has worked with hundreds of students to create unique bronze installations at Jones Middle School, New Albany High School, and High Point Elementary, to name a few.

Renate’s work can be found in both private and public collections across America. Her most recent public installation is Madonna and Baby Jesus. The Maquette of Jerrie Mock, has been selected by the Columbus Foundation as The Spirit of Columbus award. Her most popular sculpture, “Brutus on a Bench,” is located at The Ohio State University new Ohio Union, in Columbus, Ohio.
