‘Leave It to Beaver’ Actor to Show Art at Louvre

Really, would you ever think to hear of such a thing?
Tony Dow, best known as the actor who portrayed The Beav’s big brother, Wally, in the ’50s TV series “Leave It to Beaver,” will have one of his abstract sculptures on display at the Louvre. Several sculptors from the Karen Lynne Gallery — including Dow — will have their works shown at the historic art museum in Paris as part of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition.

“Having something shown at the Louvre is about as good as you can get,” said Dow, who lives in Los Angeles, “especially when it’s a juried show like this where there’s a panel of judges who pick the pieces to be in the exhibition. I’m a little humbled by the whole thing but grateful nonetheless.”

Another pleasant surprise? Dow's graciousness about the whole thing. Doesn't come across at all like a pampered Hollywood type used to getting his way.
