During the mid-twentieth century there were just a handful of artists exploring Modernist approaches to making sculpture in in North Texas. One of those pioneers was Gene Owens. With few fellow artists to draw from for technical information as well as an absence of art foundries, Owens’ experiments resulted in some of the most unique and innovative bronze sculptures created in Texas.
