Alan LeQuire is best known today for his monumental sculptures in Middle Tennessee. “From Clay to Bronze” features works done in terra cotta, bronze, and drawings, and includes the traveling exhibit “Lost Wax Casting”. This exhibit includes clay models, molds, wax castings, and finished bronze sculpture, along with photographs that help to explain the process that was invented in China over 10,000 years ago. Finished works include many of LeQuire’s small-scale figure studies. The exhibition promotes the value of traditional practices: studying the human figure and working from life.
