Come meet Artisans Center of Virginia Juried artist David Wertz and view his “repurposed steel” horse sculptures at Lynne Goldman Studio (in the Barracks Road Shopping Center in Charlottesville) on Wednesday, June 13 from 6:00-8:00pm.
Wertz will be presenting his work and discussing his technique which involves skillfully utilizing recycled scrap metal from vintage cars and trucks and using only posture to achieve personality. All work is hand-fabricated using a combination of forging and welding. About this series, Wertz has said, “I am very excited to bring in the colors and patinas of old and weathered steel to life in the concept of horses.”
