The members of the Three Rivers Artists Guild would like to add our voices to the many others who note with great sadness the passing of Tom Lowry, Sr. Tom was truly the patriarch of the Three Rivers art community. Through his vision and leadership, the Carnegie Center for the Arts became a vital and respected force in the cultural life of this community. Tom’s passion, creativity, civility, good humor, and determination became the foundation upon which programs and buildings grew. He challenged us and inspired us, and we are grateful to have benefited from his knowledge and talent. He will most surely be missed.
A fine obituary ran in the Three Rivers Commercial News, (http://bit.ly/zEr0tr) which may be consulted for more information on his interesting life.
