Unsteady Hands

David Dow

Artist, entrepreneur, advocate, and philanthropist David Dow continues and evolves his exploration of masks: do they hide who we are or allow us to become something we wish to be? His current work is inspired by childhood recollections conjured up during the tumultuous months of 2020: an exotic gift received, his eccentric paternal grandparents, and exposure to the richness of cultures vastly different from his own. Taking a pause from ceramics, he has produced a new body of work created by steady hands, glass beads, and wax. Oh, and patience.



Dolan Gallery
