As an artist, Farlowe’s career alternated between years spent as a painter and long periods as a stone sculptor. Farlowe had exhibited his sculpture at many college campuses and galleries in Georgia and North Carolina. He was awarded prestigious commissions for public sites, including the North Carolina Zoological Park in Ashboro, and the Cumberland County Public Library, Fayetteville, NC. Other sculptures have been acquired by the Mint Museum and the North Carolina Museum of Art, both in Raleigh, as well as by many corporate collections. He also taught sculpture at several southern colleges, most notably at the University of Georgia in Athens since 1980. Farlowe passed away on April 8, 2006.
