Meet The Artist -- Dan Freed
From Wreckage To Wood Sculpture
Join woodworker and artist Dan Freed Saturday, September 27th at the Sussex-Wantage Library, 69 Rt. 639, in Wantage, NJ for a fun and educational peek behind the scenes of how he made his award-winning Hurricane Sandy Birdhouse Sculpture. Hear where the idea came from and what it symbolizes, touch samples of the wood, and find out what woodworking tools and techniques went into creating it.
Like many of us Freed was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. But unlike most of us, he used that devastation as inspiration to create Hurricane Sandy Brought to Justice in Sussex County, crafted from broken trees left behind by the storm.
The event is suitable for all ages and Freed encourages parents to let their aspiring young artists tag along, since many of the materials he used are touchable by little hands.
Hurricane Sandy Brought to Justice in Sussex County will be on display through October 31st. Registration via the Library’s website http://bit.ly/1rtxjdT is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome as space allows.
For more information or directions, call the Library at 973-875-3940.
