Rick Steves to host sculptor’s solo show in Edmonds
David Varnau brings a figurative sculpture solo show in bronze and leaded glass to Rick Steves Europe Travel Center in downtown Edmonds from June 12-July 10 with an artist reception from 5-8 p.m. June 19.
Inspired by classical masters, Varnau mirrors the human narrative with his sculpture, inviting us to look into our own lives and enjoy a timeless truth of our universal human experience through the compelling beauty and the singular expressiveness of the human body.

“Unlike painting (which we all know is an illusion), sculpture is more like the “real” world – solid, three-dimensional and palpable,” both Jenn Schutte and Gene Openshaw of Rick Steves said.
“David’s bronze pieces capture so many different human emotions. Each piece reveals a unique individual.
“They are relatable and remind us of sculptures seen on our travels.”
“Europeans celebrate the human form in their public art; it’s the centerpiece of most of their squares and piazzas, and Rick Steves’ mission is to expose us Americans to that enlivening experience,” Varnau said.
“That’s one reason I’m so excited to show at his Flagship Travel Center.”
