Tony Dow, best known as Beaver’s older brother in the 1950’s hit TV series "Leave It To Beaver" is about to exhibit a bronze sculpture at the Louvre in Paris.
Tony Dow is best known as Beaver’s older brother Wally, from the 1950’s hit TV series "Leave It To Beaver." The TV show ended in 1963 but Dow went on to direct and became a visual effects producer for TV shows.
But perhaps his greatest contribution of artistic expression is his present work as an artist and sculptor. One of his works, entitled "Unarmed Warrior" is a bronze figure of a woman holding a shield. Be sure to view the link below from the Karen Lynne Gallery, where he is presently exhibiting "Unarmed Warrior," one of five works by Tony Dow.
Tony Dow is one of three artists from the Karen Lynne Gallery, acting as the American contingency to be shown at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition at the Louvre from December 11-14.
The creativity of Tony Dow, actor, director, and visual effects producer is now credited with sculpting a work of art that was chosen from a juried show to be displayed at one of the greatest museums in the world, the Louvre.
You may recognize Tony Dow’s female figure, "Unarmed Warrior" as reminiscent of Alberto Giacometti’s tall stick figures of women, also made of bronze. But unlike Giacometti’s figures who merely stand erect, Dow’s woman seems to take on modern day challenges, and is a "warrior" without a weapon.
I’ll admit to my Bellaonline.com readers that I am one who religiously watched "Leave It To Beaver" when I was young. Now I salute Tony Dow for portraying women as a powerful but peace loving force to be reckoned with. He has indeed chosen a universally understood title and message.
