"He doesn't copy anybody," Sutherlin said by phone from the gallery. "He likes certain people, but it's his own work, and he's very well respected."
TOPANGA, Calif. (AP) He is, and likely forever will be, best known as good old Wally Cleaver, the big brother who had to bail out a goofball sibling facing one dilemma after another on the classic TV series "Leave it to Beaver."

Even now, he still keeps in touch with all the old gang.
The modest, soft spoken Dow is quick to point out that the work a distinctive abstract piece titled The Warrior was not placed in the museum's permanent collection. had 14 pieces there, and there were two sculptors, and I was one of them," Dow says between sips of mango flavored lemonade as he relaxes on a recent hot, end of summer day in the living room of his home.
This weekend, more than 30 of Dow's pieces in bronze, steel and wood go on display closer to home at the Debilzan Gallery in Laguna Beach, and they could fetch several thousand dollars each from collectors. But despite his respected reputation as a sculptor, Dow acknowledges there could be as many people at Saturday's opening reception wanting to rub shoulders with the Beav's brother as see his art.

"I think it's hard, especially with the Wally image, to be taken seriously at pretty much anything other than that," he says with a chuckle and a shake of his head.
"A lot of people say his work is Rodinish, but it's all Tony," says pop artist Stephano Sutherlin, who has staged several exhibitions of Dow's sculptures at his own gallery in Little Rock, Ark.
People who stop him while he walks through his picturesque neighborhood are more likely to ask about his dog Bodie, a dreadlocked Bergamasco Shepherd. It's in the hills of his neighborhood that Dow finds much of the rough hewn, bark covered wood known as burl that he carves into intricately detailed sculptures.
His reputation as a sculptor reached a new height four years ago when he had one of his bronze pieces accepted at 2008's Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts, a 150 year old art show staged annually at the Louvre.

The artist himself says he's never paid much attention to labels, although he does cite as major influences the great 19th century French sculptor Auguste Rodin and the modern British abstract artist Henry Moore.
and his wife instead settled in Topanga in the late 1980s.
Dow is often described as an abstract artist, but a tour of his adjacent home studio shows numerous pieces reflecting a pop art and modern style as well.
Dressed in a T shirt, shorts and flip flops, Dow still looks about as fit as the teenage Wally did. But you probably wouldn't recognize him as that character otherwise except for an occasional Wally expression or mannerism.
"The dream was to get a barn space somewhere at the beach and have a studio," he says. But the beach turned out to be too expensive, and he Nike Shoes Black And White
At 67, Dow has a head of grey hair and lives with his wife, Lauren, in the wooded Southern California arts colony of Topanga Canyon.
"Jerry, I talked to him just a couple days ago," he says of Mathers.
It was 12 years ago that art took front and center in his life. Dow laughs when he remembers the day when he decided it was time to take the leap from acting to sculpting. He was up for a role in a TV show and a 28 year old executive asked, "Have you ever done comedy before," recalls Dow, co star of one of the most classic TV comedies in history.
"So it was a big deal," he adds softly with a shy smile.
Dow doesn't complain that he's still associated with his "Leave it to Beaver" character. He loved playing Wally opposite Jerry Mathers' Beaver from 1957 to 1963, so much so that he reprised the role as an adult for a TV movie and Nike Shoes Pink And Orange 104 more episodes of "The New Leave it To Beaver" during much of the 1980s.
