Nancy French "Trees to Art"

Wood, Wool, Watercolors

Location @ AOS:

Arlington Town Hall (730 Mass Ave)

I love wood. I have been working with wood for over 30 years. Having strayed from my traditional furniture background, my current work is sculptural. I use fallen branches, tree bark, firewood, hardwood scraps from other projects and wood that has been discarded by others. I see art everywhere I look but especially in nature. Line, form and texture are always there, and inspiration is never far away. There are so many opportunities for artists to re-purpose discarded, damaged or worn out materials. Finding a creative use for something that has been thrown away is always a new adventure.
