ART OPENING “Ben Woitena: Duality of Form” at Foltz Fine Art

January 27 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


THRU FEBRUARY 24, 2024: Drawings, mixed media works, and sculptures (cast bronze, stone, wood) by Ben Woitena are on view at Foltz Fine Art. Best known for his monumental public sculptural works, Woitena’s petite drawings, often measuring 4 x 6 inches, are captivating.

Born in San Antonio in 1942, Woitena received a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 1964, where he served as lab assistant and was the student of Professor Charles Umlauf. There, Woitena was formally educated in the figural tradition of drawing, clay modeling, and carving. He received his MFA in 1970 from the University of Southern California on scholarship as a teaching assistant under the tutelage of Professor Hal Gebhardt. From 1971 through 1998, Woitena was head of sculpture at the Glassell School of Art, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, in Houston, Texas, where he currently resides. Throughout his career, Woitena has been widely exhibited and has a long history of participation in monumental invitational exhibitions, nationally.
