Virgil Villers is an Ohio artist who holds a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture. Characterized by elongated shapes, a Virgil Villers sculpture often features playful figures of both human and animal form caught in an interplay of whimsy and allegory. Concern for the environment and the balancing act between man and nature is a reoccurring theme. Each Villers bronze sculpture is a very limited edition of never more than 8 in the edition. Some are unique (edition of 1). Virgil Villers has taught sculpture at the Norton, OH City Schools, Ohio Art Education Association, and the University of Akron, Wayne College. His work is in numerous corporate and public collections, including the City of Palm Desert, CA, B. F. Goodrich World Headquarters, Akron, OH, St Michael's Church, Pittsburgh, PA, and the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation, Biltmore Mall, Asheville, NC.
