Larry Pearson- “Quiet!”

On June 4, 2011 Skull-A-Day celebrated Skull Appreciation Day with an exhibit of over 100 skulls at Gallery 5 in Richmond, VA. If you didn't have a chance to make it to the gallery while the show was up, we now proudly present: "Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition".

Larry Pearson- “Quiet!”

Larry Pearson- “Quiet!” $200.00

Larry Pearson learned to weld in 1979 working in Des Moines,IA. He first learned to TIG and MIG weld aluminum running boards. Larry's next employer offered him the opportunity to do custom fabricating for other companies. One of the memorable projects was to TIG weld the seat frames and many other parts for the Super Man ride in Orlando, FL. In 2000, he was employed as a personal welder, fabricator and metal artist for a Commercial Real Estate investor. He created everything from the brackets needed for the natural gas service to Chandeliers for the "The Barn". During this period, Larry began to use his free time to create metal art pieces for friends and family as a hobby. In June of 2007 Larry became a full time artist and now runs Pearson Metal Art in Radcliffe, IA.

Please visit the artist’s exhibit page for information if this work is available for purchase.

The 2011 Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition was a collective art show celebrating the 5th anniversary of and its tremendous audience of artists and readers.

Throughout year 5.0 we will be featuring artwork from the show a few times a week. This is a chance to see all of the excellent skulls that were on display, and FOR SALE. Some of these pieces may still be available and this is a wonderful opportunity to own an original piece of skullriffic artwork. There are many well known artists who have contributed very reasonably priced works and many of them have donated their portion of the sale to benefit a great charity, the Richmond Peace Education Center.

Please take a moment to view all of the remarkable work that was created for the onset of this annual festivity. Your skull will appreciate you for showing it some love.
