On Wednesday June 21 at 7 pm, Showcase Artist of the Month and Artist Trust recipient, Leah Gerrard, will talk about her work - Sculptures in Wire.
Leah Gerrard is a professional artist working with metal to create both large and small sculptures. She has been doing metal work for over 15 years. Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with a focus on metals. she works primarily with wire and found objects to create intricate sculptures that let light through to create both strong pieces and strong shadows.
I will be talking about my process and how it has evolved over the years and how it came to be my main medium. I will also do a small demo of how to make a small basket and my method of knitting with copper.
