I’m excited and honored to have a new piece installed on the Mon River Trail in Morgantown WV for the next year. There are a number of new pieces from regional artists that are currently going in, and it’s nice to see the city investing in local work. Stop by while jogging on the rail trail, see whats been installed.
Towitzer and RDML are heading to the Chautauqua Art Institute this summer to be included in the The Melvin Johnson Sculpture Garden in Chautauqua Institution. Other artists involved in the show are listed below:

Thanks to Theresa Antonellis, her very helpful students, and the entire faculty and staff at Slippery Rock University for this exhibition, a great space to show.
unhinged has been accepted to the 10th National exhibition at Axis Gallery in Sacramento, CA. The juror, Max Presneill from the Torrance Art Museum, selected 53 works for exhibition out of 1334 images submitted by 359 artists. I’m excited to be in such good company, including Kurt Dyrhaug from Lamar University in Texas.
I recently had the opportunity to work on a large scale in the realm of Iron casting when I participated in the 2015 National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and Practices at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL. It was a fantastic opportunity to make new work, and engage with some of the top artists, faculty, and foundrymen/women in the world who are working in iron. Some images and video of the happenings from the week are below. A huge thanks to all of my large mold workshop mates and the Sloss crew for helping me get a successful casting that approached 375lbs and was really clean.
