"John Habela: Works in Wood and Bronze"
2004-05-29 until 2004-07-10
Turkaly Art Gallery
Cleveland, OH, USA United States of America

Turkaly Art Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo show of the works of John Habela in Cleveland. The show will include small to very large wood sculptures as well as ink drawings that inspire his creations.  In addition, the show will also include a series of limited edition small tribal bronzes taken from his wood pieces, the entire series of which will on display.

 In John's work you can see the influence of African tribal art as well as Polynesian and Polish folk design. His fanciful and often whimsical outlook on man is artistically depicted in each work, whether in a large piece of wood or an intricate drawing on paper. His human abstraction allows the viewer to enter the artist world of imagination. Yet Habela will, at times, will leave an enlarged but realistic foot in his work letting the viewer feel that he is not taken too far from reality. 

John Habela was born in Germany and was raised in both Germany and in Northern Indiana. He graduated from University of Indiana in 1972 with a degree in English and German literature. But the natural pull of art and in particular wood carving got the better of him. Without formal training, he has spent the past 30 years refining his personal vision through three dimensional form.

He currently resides in Chesterton, Indiana with his family.
