Mash Gallery proudly introduces Richard Downs, currently practicing contemporary sculpture in Nevada City, California. Richard Downs created a new masterwork, “Walking Man,” currently featured at Surface Spectrum now on exhibition through June 15. 

Northern California artist Richard Downs transfigures steel, twisted wire, painting and printmaking into a visual mythology celebrating human connectedness. Classically trained, Richard emerged out of Art Center Pasadena as an accomplished printmaker and visual storyteller inspired by Russian Constructivism and the “Kustomizer” car culture of the 1950s and 60s. During his more than 30 years of dedication to the fine arts, Richard Downs exhibits his sculptures, etchings and paintings throughout the United States and galleries in Atlanta, GA and Seattle, WA.
