Growing up in a family of pilots made a deep impression on Nathan Foley, an adjunct instructor at Bowling Green State University. Many of his sculptures reflect the aerodynamic shapes of airplanes and space vehicles.
Foley’s work gained notice locally when one of his works, a sculpture titled “Three and One Wings” made of wood, wire and bird bones, took first place in a sculpture competition at the Rosewood Arts Center in Kettering.
“Three and One Wings” will be on display at Rosewood through September. A group exhibition is scheduled for next year at the Fitton Center for the Creative Arts in Hamilton. You can see more examples of Foley’s sculptures in his online portfolio.
