There's something very exciting going on in Centrum's Studio for Visual Arts here at Ft Worden. Karen Hackenberg is a local visual artist working on her newest installation… a Water Shed built from the salvaged pieces of a burned out greenhouse. Watching sooty lengths of aluminum become a sculpture is one of those unexpected perks that come with running an artistic residency program… I'll share a couple of photos from Karen's Blog as a little teaser of things to come.
Karen's adventure starts at the local recyling center…
When you think of local reclaimed metal becoming fantastic art, you can't help but think about Margie McDonald . Margie was a collaborator in the de-construction of the greenhouse that will become an integral part of Karen's new work.
I can hardly wait to see the finished product… stay tuned!
