The San Antonio Botanical Garden’s Art in the Garden program, co-sponsored by the Lone Star Art Alliance, features the works of George Tobolowsky. Opening Thursday, February 23, 5:30pm-7pm, the 10-month solo exhibit of Tobolowsky’s work will include 10 steel sculptures placed in the Lucile Halsell Conservatory setting. Based at the Mountain Springs Sculpture Studio in Mountain Springs, Texas, Tobolowsky creates abstract metal sculptures from found objects, pieces of bulky industrial castoffs scoured from scrap yards and fabrication plants. The metal pieces, rarely altered, are arranged into balanced compositions fit together like “pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.” Considered part assemblage and part recycling, his work follows closely the artistic influence of Louise Nevelson and James Surls.
