Duane Paxson Opening Reception


Well versed in a variety of media, Duane Paxson combines natural forms like branches and vines with materials such as steel, fiberglass, textured resin and fragments of ceramics to create hybrid sculptures. Paxson’s art career began in the early ’80s after receiving an MFA from the University of Alabama with a major in sculpture and a minor in ceramics. A former clarinet player and music student, he incorporates the free-form nature of music into many of his pieces. Currently cranking out works from his studio in Comer, GA, Paxson has participated in nearly 100 exhibitions across the country. His solo show will be on view in the Myers Gallery through Friday, Jan. 23. Additional displays at Athens Academy present lathe-turned wooden bowls by John Callinan and works by students attending North Oconee High School.
