Allan Houser, Inc. and Allan Houser Foundry are pleased to announce a unique exhibition at the Allan Houser Sculpture Gardens. The exhibit features a retrospective of three decades of sculpture by renowned artist, David Pearson.
David Pearson, a life long resident of New Mexico, was immensely influenced by Allan Houser's life, work and dedication to the three-dimensional artwork of sculpting. Pearson had modeled his career after Allan Houser and takes great pride in the inspiration that the master gave to him from the way he constructed his studio, his dedication to the art and passion he brings to his work.
“We are delighted to welcome David Pearson to show his wonderful work at our Sculpture Gardens” said Kim Bourne, CEO of Allan Houser, Inc. “David has a long association with Allan Houser and with our foundry and it is very fitting that his work should be displayed here”
We invite you to witness this historic event, Pearson's body of work in conjunction with his mentor, Allan Houser in a magnificent setting.
