Cottage Grove artist's work on display in Corvallis this April

From a press release

The Majestic Theatre Art Gallery's monthly Artists Reception on Friday, April 2, 2010 from 5:00 to 6:30.

This month the Majestic Art Gallery is featuring original metal artwork by Jerry Buskirk of Wood-N-Iron in Cottage Grove, Ore. After retiring from a long and varied career, Mr. Buskirk began "dabbling" in metal work. He says he found it fascinating and very gratifying and began showing his artwork at local festivals where people began to notice and purchase his art. Over the past decade he and his wife have designed and produced many pieces of original art and have people who come from out of state to view their work.

Mr. Buskirk says "We like the custom work the best, because it opens many new avenues of art."

At their home in Cottage Grove, Ore., they have three shops set up to do many types of work. Mr. Buskirk does specialty wood work, such as carving, shelves, mantels and clocks as well as blacksmithing.

The artwork will be on display for the entire month of April. For more information call 541-758-7827.
