Art in The Park

Artist Spotlight Bruce Wilham has been working with metal for years, welding pressed metal into the shapes of cats and dogs. But when his wife threatened to throw out his collection of scrap metal, Bruce began experimenting with his “junk.” To his delight, the process brought out the artist in him as he “twisted and turned” pieces of discarded metal – old cans, caulk guns, tools, just about anything – and recognizable shapes emerged. He begins with a pile of “junk” collected from flea markets and auctions and lays it out flat. Then he twists the parts about and notes where he needs to fill in with more “junk.” He then welds them together into a variety of figures ranging from 6 inches to 4 feet high. Some pieces he paints for an “immaculate” look but mostly he leaves it “natural.” This individual approach insures a one-of-a-kind piece. “I have always wanted to do something no one else does,” explains Bruce. Bruce’s “Junk to Enjoy” can be found at Art in the Park on May 27 and 28 at The Woodford Inn.
