The 12th Annual Alexandria King Street Art Festival was held on September 13th and 14th. While checking out the wide variety of art, we came across a number of artists who use cast off goods in their art.
Meeting Patti and Bob Stern was a lot of fun. They put a lot of their personality into the art they create. Patti points out "we transform wonderfully old architectural artifacts into truly one-of-a-kind art pieces." You can find Patti and Bob at http://www.theperfectview.com .
Sarah Bean creates custom carved books. Using books as her media, she creates a three dimensional, hand carved and illustrated work of art. Sara and her work can be found at www.artandpoems.com .
Above are some of the pieces made by Tiffany Ownbey. She says, "My work is a study of human interactions, relationships and memories...sometimes humorous and sometimes tart. Scale and proportion are intentionally manipulated for emphasis. Using paper-mache I make figurative sculpture out of antique sewing patterns, vintage books and found objects." She can be found at www.tiffanyownbey.com .
Sandhi makes paper mosaic portraits. She makes amazing images with advertisements, junk mail and message that she receives. Sandhi says, "I express my vision through a variety of images - mostly portraits - and have changed the way I make art and the way I see the world around me...for good." Sandhi and her art can be found at www.schimmelart.com . Look for Sandhi inspired art our Art on the Avenue Kids Korner booth! October 4th from 10 am - 4 pm on the Mt. Vernon Field in Del Ray.
