Following the close of artist David Tobey's two-and-a-half-month one-man art show at the White Plains Museum this past June, the Washington Square Art Gallery, that represents a number of internationally famous artists including Westchester resident Charles Fazzino and the well known painter of wine, Thomas Arvid, has a number of his sculptures displayed at the gallery.
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.
Tobey's work has also been recently put on display at James in Bedford Hills and at the museum store at the Katonah Museum of Art.
