West Virginia University visiting assistant professor of sculpture Douglas Loewen will exhibit his work Friday and Saturday (Dec. 1-2) in downtown Morgantown.
The art will be on view at In Touch and Concerned, 364 High St., Suite 226, from 5-8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, and from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2.
The exhibition will feature artworks Loewen created using a combination of found and fabricated materials.
My ongoing challenge is to bring a new experience to the viewer using artworks that move,said Loewen, who teaches in WVU s Division of Art.
I work quickly and inexpensively with existing structures, whether cultural, political or architectural, making kinetic installations that combine humor with reflections about current events and issues.
Loewens installations have been shown in Florida at the Tampa Museum of Art and the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota as well as at numerous private and university galleries. He is the recipient of two Florida Individual Artist Fellowships.
