Here is a collection of Ron Cowan pieces.
Each of our shows is considered a special collection. Our goal is always to bring 50 faces. Sometimes we make it and sometimes we fall just short. Although visitors usually buy only one or two at a time, the feeling of a large gathering is very special and powerful. Each face is unique and brings to the group its own emotion. We have a lot of fun.
The Long Breath is a collection of seven pieces set among rocks and old pier remnants in Belfast Harbor. They were installed for the Arts in the Park show, after which the City of Belfast purchased them as a permanent art installation. Ron is now the “keeper of the hair” and maintains them through the changing seasons. At high tide they are fully submersed, while at low tide you can walk out to and among the faces.
