Week thirty-six - Repurposed me
As you know we are an family of artists and love the visual arts. This love has been enriched by our monthly Friday night Art Walk in downtown Ocala. If you haven't come out for this wonderful event then I urge you to do so in June on the First Friday. The downtown area comes alive with a buzz of culture and rich artistic flair. You will see sidewalk painters, sculptors, singers, and just interesting characters. The local galleries are open with food samples, and wonderful art for the viewing and purchase. We swing in all the shops and say hello to old friends and try to make new ones. It never fails that I click away some super duper images, such amazing subjects.
The May walk was a particularly exciting one as I was picking up a new piece commissioned for my new studio. Jody Schaible of "Repurposed Me" constructed a Cindi Cyclops out of silverware, a platter, and a penny. *note the penny has the date of establishment for Cindi with an eye photography....super cool huh?! Jody has a passion for using his hands to make some amazing pieces and his mind is ever working on how to reuse and repurpose daily objects. Jody and his cutie wife Elaine will be at the First Friday art walk in June as well, stop by their booth, pick out something interesting. You'll be saving the planet and lookin' good at the same time!
