Always in the past, if Alonzo was asked if he sculpted dinosaurs, he said no, because they were “so “xtinct!”
Alonzo has completed this pastel, which he has been working on for several weeks. He has named it “Forest,” and like most of his pastels, he would sell it for $100.
Alonzo hosts another of his famous PATH parties: a community-building gathering of family, friends, and supporters. These events are held once or twice a year and are open to any who wish to be involved with Alonzo’s goals for a good life, and success with his artistic endeavors.
Thought I would let you know that “Little Rumba” has finally arrived following his long-awaited journey over the Atlantic from the US to the UK! (Leicester-England to be precise!)
A new offering of an “old” sculpture, one of Alonzo’s signature pieces, this dolphin ensemble which he has named “Family Gathering”.

Have you ever been inspired by someone to the point where it changes the way you think and feel about the world? Well, this happened to me in my fifth grade year at Lyons Elementary with a few of my fellow students. It all started in fifth grade during our Human Rights Unit. Specifically, we were learning about how people with disabilities have also had to fight for fair treatment in our country. This is how we were introduced to Alonzo Clemons, Sculpture Savant.
Five of Alonzo’s western art sculptures continue to be on display and are available in Denver’s art district, at the Art of Life Gallery, 800 S. Jason St., Denver, CO 80223.
On a recent Sunday, Alonzo produced a sculpture of a totally different kind, not at all his typical animal works. It is this remarkable crucifix.
Several years ago, Alonzo’s life-sized Arabian foal, Cassie, was purchased for placement at KidsPark, a disability-accessible play area at Lafayette Elementary School. Ultimately, for several reasons, the sculpture could not be placed in the schoolyard.
One of Alonzo’s new friends asked a question that I had asked over 20 years ago, “Can I buy a sculpture that has not been cast in bronze?”
Nancy Mason wrote this reply – Alonzo, of course, creates all these sculptures using clay or a wax/clay mixture. Then a mold is made from his model, and then it goes to the foundry for casting.
