Time Funnel Opening Reception and Artist’s Talk (4-6pm) –
Artist and retired art teacher David L. Smith of Siren, WI. uses objects from second hand stores in combination with his own woodwork to create his pieces. He describes his work as “found object sculpture with influences of folk art, surrealism, and outsider art. I like to re-purpose objects from the past and put them into a new environment. The pieces that I do are like entries into a journal of my life. It’s my way of communicating with others-what I think about and feel.”
The public is invited to an opening reception from 4 to 6 pm, with an artist talk at 5:00. The reception is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be up through the end of the month.
This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Community Arts Education Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
