A second-generation sculptor, Joshua Tobey moved from Santa Fe to Loveland for the art scene.
Tobey, who creates stylized bronzes and patinas of wildlife, also made the relocation for the city’s foundries, which he discovered after participating in the Colorado Governor’s Invitational Art Show Sale for the past 13 years.
“Colorado is remarkable for the number of quality artists in the state,” said Tobey Saturday evening during the opening night gala at the Loveland Museum/Galley.
The 35-year-old artist joined another 54 Colorado artists for the 22nd annual Governor’s Art Show, presented by the Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs as their major fundraiser. Proceeds from the sale, which will continue through
June 2, will support student artist scholarships and the clubs’ youth and polio eradication programs.
