The exhibit is Dobbin's fifth with the gallery and features new sculptures consisting of steel, copper, lead, wood, plaster and acrylic. His work reflects his concern for the emotionally and developmentally challenged students he teaches. Dobbin is based in Maryland and has degrees from Indiana University, USC and George Washington (in fine arts, ceramics and education).
More and more we are seeing excellent artists with backgrounds in education--especially elementary education. Dobbins has been exhibited all over the USA and in London. He also taught at the Phillips School for Contemporary Education where he developed an arts program for emotionally disturbed children.
