Award winning artist Robert Fogel announced today that his abstract sculptures “Box Canyon” and “Mother Lode” were chosen for an art exhibition at the Meadows Museum in Shreveport.

His works were chosen through an art competition which was conducted in late August by the Meadows Museum. The juror for the competition was Jolene Mechanic, Director of the Flood Gallery in Asheville, NC. The dates for this show are September 8 through December 15.

Robert Fogel lives and creates his art in Haughton and is an emerging artist. He began sculpting after retiring from the University of Michigan Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department.

Regarding this art show Fogel stated “I am very pleased and gratified to be chosen for this show. It is nice to be recognized locally because it is where I live and work.”
