The Fall Equinox Writers Hour is in conjunction with artist Alan LeQuire’s installation Dream Forest. LeQuire is an international artist whose work is highly sought after. LeQuire is best known for creating Athena, one of the largest indoor sculptures in the western world, located in Nashville’s Parthenon. Alan’s work includes Tennessee’s Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial and a large bronze relief for the Tennessee State Capitol. Included in his many awards and commendations are a Tennessee Governor’s Citation in 1987 and the American Institute of Architects Design Award for Athena Parthenos.

With this exhibit, Alan LeQuire has merged environmental beauty with the human form, something he believes all viewers respond to as far as subject matter in art. The large textured forms of “Dream Forest” morph gracefully into classical Italian torsos reminiscent of the works LeQuire apprenticed under in his early years. The sculptures flow into the forest floor with poetic narration. The vision completes with eight-foot woodcut prints and a suspended forest ceiling. «Read the rest of this article»
