- New York, NY (1888PressRelease) August 02, 2011 - Following the close of New Rochelle, NY artist David Tobey's two-and-a-half-month one-man art show at the White Plains Museum this past June, three venues in Westchester County, NY are now exhibiting his sculpture. They include The Washington Square Art Gallery, 367 South Ridge Street in Rye Brook; James, 21 Babbit Road in Bedford Hills, and the museum store at The Katohan Museum, Route 22 & Jay Street in Katonah.
The Washington Square Gallery, that specializes in art by internationally famous artists such as Charles Fazzino and Thomas Arvid is featuring large pieces from over a foot to four feet in height. James and The Katonah Museum store have a selection of smaller works. Every sculpture on display at all three locations are one-of-a kind creations.
Tobey has had over a dozen solo and group shows of his art at galleries in New York City and in Westchester over the past five years. His art and career have also been commented upon extensively in publications such as The New York Times, Art in America, The Art Times Journal, The Journal News, and many other local newspapers and other media. A feature article on his sculpture in the January 2007 issue of Gallery & Studio magazine describes it as having " . . .a unique draftsmanly fluidity in metal, surpassing even that of [Julio] Gonzalez".
Tobey creates his welded steel sculpture at Les Métalliers Champenois in Paterson, New Jersey -- an international award-winning foundry that specializes in fine and architectural art in metal for industry. LMC's projects have included the Torch & Flame of the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Flame in Paris, the main entrance doors of the New York Public Library and others both here in the U.S. and abroad. Here Tobey has access to a huge array of materials and tools to fabricate his metal artwork.
