WILLIAM BARTH OSMUNDSEN
William Barth Osmundsen has held major exhibits in New York City, Oslo, Norway, Houston, Baltimore, Newport, RI, and Stamford, CT. In 1976 he created his ongoing “Bronzes from the Sea” series after sailing onboard Norway’s Christian Radich. In 1978 King Olav V presented the Osmundsen trademark sculpture “At the Helm” as the City of Oslo Award.
Bill first painted with his father who attended Cooper Union. He gained his love of the sea from his Norwegian grandfather, a yacht captain and rigger boss who also worked on the Panama Canal.
Young Osmundsen attended Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and owned an art gallery in New Jersey while teaching sculpture at the Ridgewood Art Association, before enlisting in the U.S. Navy. In the Navy, Bill was an Illustrator Draftsman and created artworks while stationed in Little Creek, Virginia.
By 1981 Osmundsen was living in New Hampshire where he began casting his own silver sculptures and expanded his foundry operation to encompass large bronze pours.
Major commissions have included the 1983 America’s Cup Committee; the Frisco Art Council, CO; the Boy Scouts of America, CT; and the Norwegian Immigration Assn.’s 2000 Ellis Island Exhibit. Osmundsen has also received two awards with New Hampshire’s Percent for Art competition. For more information about William Barth Osmundsen, visit http://bronzesea.org/Biography.aspx
