Edwin Owre: New Constructions

January 19, 2018 - April 7, 2018

With an artistic career spanning more than five decades, artist and educator Edwin Owre works continuously in his Grand Isle studio creating new, colorful "constructions" that explore the possibilities of drawing and the gesture through abstract sculpture. Referencing the sensibilities of the formative American art movements of the 1960s and 70s, while embracing contemporary expressions of mark-making, Owre creates work that is exciting, immediate, and most importantly formative to a generation of Vermont-based contemporary artists working today.

Edwin Owre: New Constructions is presented in part by the The Mollie Ruprecht Fund for Visual Art, The UVM Department of Art and Art History, and the Humanities Center, University of Vermont.
