Artist Bio

Charlie Brouwer and his wife Glenda live in Floyd County in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural SW Virginia in a 100 year old farmhouse they have renovated. 9 acres of open fields and woods with 20 outdoor sculptures placed alongside a ½ mile walking trail, surround the house and studio. Charlie calls their place “Out There” not only because of its remote location at the end of a 1.5 mile gravel road, but also because he believes that art can point us towards thoughts, feelings, and meanings beyond our immediate experience.
