Strength and Steel
Unique hand-crafted stainless-steel sculptures as well as visually stimulating drawings
Henry Hoovestal is an artist, welder, and metal worker as well as a navigator on oil tankers and other vessels. This exhibit features his unique hand-crafted stainless-steel sculptures as well as visually stimulating drawings that were made as a creative outlet while working on the ships away from his home and family. This methodical and hypnotic ink work helped him stay creative while underway and out to sea, until he was able to return to his loved ones. These drawings combined with his skill at metal sculpture will fill the Chessman Gallery until September 12. Open Thursdays through Sundays 10 to 4pm.
