An exhibition, "Direct Metal Sculpture," by Emeritus G.L. Flint Professor of Fine Arts J. Michael Lowe is in the String Room Gallery at Wells College, Aurora, NY, through December 8.
The exhibition features metal sculptures that Lowe, who now lives in Ithaca, NY, has worked by hand, with bending, repoussé and other shaping techniques. Copper, steel and other metals have been utsed to create a broad range of expressions in the exhibition, from embossed planes to complex drawings in space. Gallery Director William Ganis notes, "Lowe's work holds to the tenets of modernism, especially his truth to materials and his finding new spatial solutions for timeless and distinctively sculptural problems."
