Art Brokerage: Jack Dowd American Artist: b. 1938 - Artist and Sculptor Jack Dowd is quickly making a name for himself as one of America's foremost modern sculptors. He is a contemporary social realist, a connisseur of American types, the boisterous, eccentric, innocently hilarious individuals who rarely become the subject of art. Dowd Celebrates Americas' idiosyncratic extended family in his ongoing series of full-sized figures...with affection, humor, and satiric wit. Jack Dowd's life-size creations, viewed on continuing exhibition in museums and galleries throughout the nation, are recognized by Who's Who In American Art and are collected by private, public and corporate patrons from Florida to Australia. His first major sculpture to receive widespread recognition was "I Love New York," a punk rocker that earned Jack best of show in the 1989 Coconut Grove Arts Festival. To obtain painstaking attention to character, He now spends two to three months sculpting a single piece of artwork. When he isn't in his studio, he feels that an important part of his work is to keep in touch with humanity. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
