Father and son artists present a joint exhibition


Sculptor Paul Bowden, who has lived and worked in Polish Hill for several years, is currently showing his work alongside that of his father Robert Bowden, a realist watercolor painter.  The joint show at the Mendelson Gallery in Shadyside runs  through December 12.

Polish Hill residents may be familiar with Paul’s work; he created the first and only Sprout Fund sculptural project, which debuted on a very cold November evening last year.  The sculpture, on the side of the new Tai + Lee offices (3106 Brereton Street), is particularly visible at night, when a motion sensor turns on a small spotlight on two small figures examining a hole in the side of the building.
