"California Sculptor Noah Purifoy"
1999-10-12 until 1999-11-07
Allen Priebe Gallery, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh
Oshkosh, WI, USA United States of America

California sculptor, Noah Purifoy, one of the country's most profound assemblage artists, is the featured one-man exhibition entitled Random Transformations at the Allen Priebe Gallery, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh from October 13 through November 7, 1999.  Purifoy will travel to Oshkosh from his studio in Joshua Tree, California for the Artist reception on Wednesday, October 20. Artist and arts educator, Purifoy is recognized for his role in founding the Watts Towers Arts Center in the early 1960s and inspiring a generation of Los Angeles artists.  Then Governor Jerry Brown appointed Purifoy as a founding member of the California Arts Council where he served for eleven years, developing exemplary artist-in-communities programs.

Recently, a major retrospective traveled nationally in 1997-1998 and garnered critical praise.  In 1989, Purifoy relocated from Los Angeles to the high desert of Joshua Tree, California.  There he has created more than 100 assemblages, installations, and sculptures on the desert floor surrounding his studio.  Current efforts are underway to develop the site as a permanent cultural center and public art park through the formation of the Noah Purifoy Foundation.  The Oshkosh exhibition features flat work from 1989 through 1999. Purifoy has also been invited to present a lecture slide presentation at Columbia College in Chicago following his Oshkosh visit.
