Tribal Spears To Host Artist/Blacksmith
Tribal Spears Gallery will host Susan Madacsi, artist and blacksmith, this month and next.
Madacsi uses both traditional and contemporary blacksmithing techniques to design and create her pieces in steel, copper, and bronze, which she uses to reveal organic forms. The material is first heated to temperatures of up to 2400 degrees and then worked by hand on the anvil with hammers and other tools. For large-scale forgings, Madacsi works with a power hammer to create the forms.
The opening reception is Saturday, August 18th, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, with exibition times from 1:00 to 6:00 pm running thru September 16th.
