The One to Count On...

Artists use recycled materials

Posted: Monday, August 3rd, 2009 at 6:08 am

Two artists at this weekend’s “Celebrate your Senses” event in Washington work in rather unconventional mediums. There was Lisa VanGilst of Oskaloosa. She runs a sort of salvage yard for purses. She says this guarantees a unique purse. Another artist at the street festival takes things most of us throw away, and makes sculptures. Don Hutchings runs Black Crow Forge in Conesville, where he makes scrap metal into statues. Hutchings work might utilize a washer for a bird’s eye, or a hog feeder pan for it’s body.
