A master of hammered lead sculpture, this Ohio artist, who had a brief stint as a student at the University of Iowa, produced almost 500 lead sculptures before succumbing to the toxicity and physical demands of his chosen medium. 42 stunning sculptures, mostly in lead but also some bronze castings, fill the Falb Gallery until July 3rd. Elegant ballerinas, beautful portraits, and playful children were some of Cavanaugh’s most beloved subjects. Don’t miss this extraordinary collection.
