Art & Sculpture Fabrication for Artists
In the early 1990's, Zahner began offering engineering and art fabrication services to fine artists, collectors, and patrons of the arts. At the time, Zahner had just completed the complex sculptural buildings by Frank Gehry and Antoine Predock. Zahner began to receive requests to provide art fabrication from local artists and designers as well as internationally established artists.
Producing artistic surfaces wasn't new for the engineers and craftsmen at Zahner. The company has built artistic features for many years, but it wasn't until the 1990's that the firm begin working in earnest toward developing new processes for the arts community. Zahner has now produced hundreds of artworks of every scale, in a wide variety of mediums, across multiple decades. Zahner provides art fabrication for every gamut of artist. This includes both emerging artists in art, sculpture, and public art, as well as established artists such as Walter de Maria, Jan Hendrix, Sol Lewitt, and Leo Villareal.
Zahner also provides fine art and public art restoration for corroded or otherwise damaged metal artworks. In collaboration with partner firm Metalabs in Kansas City, Zahner has been involved in both the consultation and repair of dozens of artworks, including works by Donald Judd, Martin Puryear and many more.
