What is showing:

Anvils & Arcs

An exhibition of artistic and functional metalwork by artists David Cross (Fergus, ON) and Jane Longstaffe (Holstein, ON). Works combine traditional techniques with contemporary design and experimentation, coaxing organic, animated forms from hard forged metal.   

 

“With some heat, a hammer and an anvil, metal can be coaxed into any shape desired. It can look alive, as if it could move in a wind, fly above you or startle you with its presence”- Jane Longstaffe

 

“A dialogue and a dance unfolds between the organic and the manufactured”- David Cross
