Bert Gilbert The Metal Master

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue Fine Art & Gifts

We welcome you to join us December 16th, beginning at 6:00 p.m. as we celebrate our feature Bert Gilbert, The Metal Master.
Bert received a BA in Sculpture and Painting from Indiana University in 1983, but, allowed many years to pass artistically fallow while creating a family, home, and remodeling business in Bloomington, Gilbert Construction.
Yes, the same fellow who may have designed and constructed your home addition, the same fellow that underwrites you favorite show on WFIU, when he turned 50 decided to return to the sanctuary of his youth, making art.
The Venue challenged Bert to create a body of metal sculpture that manifested his creative style, and was small enough and affordable enough to practically become a part of one’s home collection. We believe he has more than met that challenge.
This will be an excellent opportunity to come down town and gain some artisan gift giving inspiration! Visit the following link for free parking options near The Venue:
We look forward to hosting you Friday!
