Biography from Neal Auction Company
In 1963, Gary L. Freeman received his Masters of Fine Art from Tulane University, with a focus on metal casting and fabrication.
After graduating, he spent three years as a partner in a fine arts foundry in New Orleans, Orleans Workshop, Inc. In 1968, he accepted the position he would hold until his retirement in 2001, chair of the sculpture department at the Herron School of Art and Design at Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis.
As Steven Mannheimer glowingly writes, "over the decades, Freeman’s sculpture spanned a range of styles and material processes, but was always informed by the same exacting professionalism both in technical execution and the thorough consideration of artistic idea. In an era when many modernist sculptors hired fabricators to complete works too big or demanding for their own technical expertise, Freeman was his own expert, and it showed in the meticulous surfaces, edges and joints of his signature steel constructions."
