Angel with Uzi

(Although this piece is still part of the Herb White Estate, it is available for purchase. Please contact the artist)

“Angel with Uzi” was shown in 1986 at Tom’s first gallery, Walker, Ursitti, and McGinnis, in Washington, DC. The sculpture was then purchased by Washington art collector, Herb White. (see 1989 Museum and Arts article )

Angel with Uzi attracts a lot of attention for , among other reasons, the inclusion of an Uzi as the angels weapon, modernizing this iconic type of figurative sculpture.

Here it is displayed in a dramatic warehouse setting during the Rappahannock Artists and Gallery Tour, Washington, VA in 2013.
