Where to buy...Tony Dow
A select exhibition in a private gallery
He’s shown work at the Louvre, but artist Tony Dow knows he’ll always be most widely known for his TV past. The 67-year-old Californian, who in the 1950s played Wally Cleaver on TV’s Leave It to Beaver, has been painting since youth and sculpting for 30 years plus. His current show groups works in bronze, steel, and burl wood, all merging the abstract with the figurative and drawing inspiration from Auguste Rodin and Henry Moore. Four years ago, Dow had a bronze selected to appear in the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition in Paris. It’s enough to make an art lover exclaim, “Golly gee.” At DeBilzan Gallery, 224 Forest Ave., Laguna Beach, Calif., (949) 444-2406. Prices range from $500 to $12,000.
