Tim Lowly



Chicago-based artist, curator, musician and teacher Tim Lowly was born in Hendersonville, North Carolina in 1958. As the son of medical missionaries (his father was a hospital administrator), he spent most of his youth in South Korea. He attended Calvin College and received a BFA degree in 1981. In 1981 he married Sherrie Rubingh. Their daughter Temma was born in 1985. She is profoundly disabled (cerebral palsy with spastic quadriplegia) and has been the central subject of Lowly’s work.

From 1994 - 2023 Tim was affiliated with North Park University in Chicago as gallery director, professor, and artist-in-residence.  Now he makes art with a few less distractions...

Tim Lowly is represented by Koplin Del Rio Gallery, Seattle.
