Salmon Falls Gallery
"OUT OF THE ASHES: Cast Glass + Farm Implements," works by Robert DuGrenier. This collection of DuGrenier’s work was born out of tragedy: the historic barn on his property burned to the ground in October 2015. He's been using the metal and cast iron pieces (missing, of course, their wooden handles and parts) from farm implements and antiques that were left behind in the debris, to create stunning sculptures. Many of the pieces in the "Out of the Ashes" series at first glance appear to be encased in ice; not until the viewer comes close is it revealed that the sculpture is made with glass.
Aug. 7 – Sept. 27, virtually 24/7 or at the Gallery Thurs. – Mon. 11 a.m. -5 p.m. SalmonFallsGallery.com or 413-625-9833.
