Do Not Miss Out on an Art Collection Exhibit by This Beloved Voice Actor

He's more popularly known for being the regimented voice of TV's animated Cartoon Network talk show series "Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast," but Lakeland's George Lowe is also an accomplished artist and fervent art collector.

Lowe, 58, who lives off Cleveland Heights Boulevard, is an accomplished folk artist who for the second time has assembled his works and those of other artists in his collection in an exhibition called “One Collector's Dream." The exhibit will be in the Polk Museum of Art (PMOA) from Sept. 24 to Dec. 3.

Among the works on display, according to information provided by the museum, are those by noted and renowned artists James Rosenquist, Howard Finster, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann. However, works from other people less known for their artistic talents will be shown, including those by Michael Stipe, lead singer of the band R.E.M.; Florida folk artist Mama Johnson; Shepard Fairey, an American contemporary street artist, graphic designer, activist, illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene; Lonnie Holley, a folk art sculptor; and Sandy Skoglund, an American photographer and installation artist.

In total, 50 works will be on exhibit, five of them Lowe's. It is the second time he had put his works and part of his art collection in the museum, the first time in 1999, when he had 114 pieces on display.
