A benefit for the Corrales Arts Center Sunday, November 14, offers an online tour of the sculpture garden and other artwork collected by Jim and Angelique Lowry. It is the third in the art center’s “Exploring Artful Places” available to both members and non-members. A $15 ticket can be purchased at the center’s website. The tour begins at 3 p.m. For more information, call 505-269-8385.
The tour is described as “primarily an outdoor sculpture collection that is a beautifully landscaped garden into which a variety of small-and large-scale sculpture is placed.”
It includes some of the art collection indoors as well. Most of the work is by New Mexico artists, including those living in Corrales and Albuquerque.
“Much of the work is highly abstract, often inspired by nature,” according to an organizer for Visiting Artful Places, Julius Kaplan. “The collection is very personal, and the process of purchasing them was random. Sometimes a piece would be seen at a gallery simply by chance. On some occasions, art professions would bring works to the collector’s attention.”
The Lowrys began the collection about 20 years ago.
