Sometimes artists do not know they can create. Ben Bridwell, who says his “background in metal fabrication and welding provided the framework from which my art … emerged,” is a good example. This self-taught, self-claimed “risk-taker” makes abstract sculpture, fountains and furniture in stainless steel and aluminum. Usually working on commission, he says he “enjoys the collaborative process that takes place when working with other artists, architects or designers for large-scale pieces.” “The textures, colors and shapes available from many metals are often taken for granted and sometimes not used to their full advantage,” Bridwell says. “It is (my) desire through art to reveal the inherent beauty within some of the metals we commonly use.” The artist reception is Saturday, Dec. 29, at 6:30 p.m. —Jo Anne Triplett
