Shadow Shot Sunday - Mechanical



















Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and shadows can be art by themselves. And the mechanics of making art can make shadows too. Yesterday, we attended a reception for a new gallery in a cool old factory in nearby Beacon Falls CT.

Known as Studio E.Y.E. (Express Yourself Endlessly), there were more than a few shadows emanating from the metalworking tools of the trade of artist and owner Robert Dancik  He works all sorts of metals into jewelry and offers art classes as he describes "to learn, play and express your creativity"

Most wouldn't look at presses, shears, grinders, hammers and anvils as stylish, nor this old factory studio. I do, and this workspace is full of shadows too. The creativity of artists can never be underestimated :)

Presses, grinders, and anvils, oh my!

This is a good reminder how important and interesting it would be for girls to learn and play with stuff like this...

Wow. So many "cogs and spokes and wheels" behind art. An intriguing place.
