Passion for Carpentry Translates to Beautiful Art
The Willoughby Art Gallery at Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is pleased to announce the opening of Animal Kingdom by Dana Metcalf, on October 10, 2014. There will be an opening reception on October 10, from 6pm-9pm at The Willoughby Art Gallery in the Proctor Center at 7000 Hamilton Avenue, North College Hill. Metcalf’s work will be featured until November 28, 2014. The gallery will feature over 20 pieces of Metcalf’s interpretation of the animal kingdom. “Since I have limited vision I have to mostly feel a model of the animal or whatever I am creating. If a model is not available, I create my pieces by memory or by description.” As a child Metcalf had a passion for working with his hands, and with tools. His dream was to become a carpenter, like his father. And, although he was unable to pursue this dream due to his lack of sight, he has translated his passion into beautiful art. “I couldn’t be a carpenter, but I could still work with my hands and create things and I get great satisfaction out of that.” Dana has been sculpting at Clovernook for approximately 15 years. The Willoughby Art Gallery features art by persons who are blind or visually impaired and art that is tactile, allowing greater access to individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Gallery hours will be Monday – Friday 8am-5pm or by appointment. For more information please call Scott Wallace at 513-522-3860.
