Artist Reception

On Friday Evening I went to a Artist Reception at Moberg Gallery. It was a fun event and nice to hear the artist's perspective. One of the artist M. Shawn Crahan is best known as the founding member of hard rock band Slipknot. He made his debut into the world of contemporary art in the gallery earlier this fall. The picture above is Shawn talking about his art & creative ideas to the group.
This is one of the bench's Shawn designed & welded. They can be used indoor & outdoor. We helped him with the cushions on these benches, which was fun to be a part of!

The show also featured Des Moines based artist Frank Hansen. Above Frank is talking about the interesting story for the inspiration in a particular piece of art. Frank charms viewers with his complex palette & compelling subject matter.
