Sherry Owens
Twirling like a Seed in the Wind

2013

About

Owens meticulously builds her unique sculptures using crepe myrtle twigs, creating densely chaotic nest-like forms that read like open drawings in space. Her dynamic works represent the beauty and fragility of the natural world, while on a deeper level explore intrinsic connections between spirituality and ecology. Owens, a native Texan, resides in Dallas. She received her BFA from Southern Methodist University in 1972. She was awarded the Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award in 1999, named the West Texas Triangle artist in 2010 and received the Artisan Award from the AIA Dallas in 2014. Owens has exhibited nationally and internationally, and was recently featured in the exhibition entitled Texas! in Delhi, India. Her work is in numerous corporate and public collections including: JW Marriot; American Airlines; Meadows School of the Arts; the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Honolulu; Neiman Marcus; City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Collection; and the Texas Sculpture Garden.
