Dave Rowe is a sculptor, educator, and fabricator. His work exists within the intersections of landscape, history, and the transitory spaces within the American psyche. It is informed by an aesthetic developed during a youth spent in the Midwestern United States, and a visual language developed building miniatures and models as a child. He is a 2011 recipient of an Efroymson Family Fund Fellowship, and a 2015 recipient of a Nevada Arts Council Fellowship. He has participated in numerous solo and group shows nationally, as well as participating in several residency programs. His work was included in the traveling show “Crafting a Continuum”, originating at Arizona State University. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Sculptural Practices at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and holds a BFA from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign and an MFA from Indiana University Bloomington.
During his residency, Dave will create a small, mobile foundry which can allow anyone in the community to create their own aluminum castings using sand and scrap metal. This empowering technology has previously been only accessible to those with special training, or with academic privilege. Dave will introduce the foundry to different groups around Muncie, and will hold a series of community foundry pours and workshops at PlySpace. Dave will be in residence from May 23rd to July 18th.
