Folk Fest happened this past weekend.... We went on Saturday in support of our dear & longtime friend + participating artist, Chris Beck (written previously about here). Chris is an amazing sculptor, choosing to work with metal as his medium. Each of his pieces crafted for the show are completely unique and dictated by how the metal starts to take shape as he works with it.... People walking into Chris' booth for a closer look are blown away by how the seemingly soft folds & curves of his clothing & objects are hard to the touch and nearly indestructible. The AJC included Chris in a write-up last week.... Read more here. My pictures of Chris' work from Folk Fest above & below.
*Chris' older sister and I met our freshman year at Sweet Briar.... 2 years later, Chris followed to Virginia as well, attending Hampden-Sydney College.
