Press release from the Greater Hartford Arts Council
Robert Loebell's wood carved and burned pieces explore how photography creates personal and historical memory. Although images of the past, the selections as they exist today take on new life as sculpture that is as much abstract as realistic.
Loebell has spent the last three decades drawing, painting, and sculpting in wood, exhibiting his work throughout New England. A member of both the New York Sculptors Guild and The Silvermine Guild of Artists, Loebell holds a Masters of Education in Art from Temple University. Originally from Philadelphia, Loebell has taught art in the West Hartford Public School system for the last 27 years.
A free public opening reception with the artist will be held on Thurs., July 26 from 5—7 p.m. in the gallery space. Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.
