Local Artist Featured at "The Gallery" in Lemont, PA
Mail Box Bunny - above
One of the two "artists' of the month" at the Lemont, PA Gallery Shop is Elli Groninger, who uses junk metal to form eclectic, colorful and intricate pieces of sculpture. Working with old appliances, cars, and twisted scrap metal, she uses a blow torch to twist and weld the metal into imaginative animals, people, and monsters. She then paints them in vibrant colors. I was captivated by her mad-cap, caricaturistic artistry and want to share her talent with you.
Here is our local art gallery from the outside:
And from the inside:
This moose head is especially funny for this area of hunters, many of whom have stuffed buck and doe heads on their walls...
Some of my fiber art can be seen in the two photos below.
