Event Description

Thousand Islands Arts Center announces a special, ten-day only exhibit (August 1 – 10) dedicated to John Scarlett’s spectacular metal forgings: Strike ‘til the Iron is Art: 30 Years at the Anvil.

The exhibit will expose viewers to a unique, expert use of historical and contemporary applications of iron, stainless steel, copper and bronze, along with the latest welding and cutting operations.

John Scarlett is a whitesmith as well as a blacksmith and has an impressive – if not unmatched – familiarity with how iron responds to heat and hammer. He uses mostly traditional techniques with handmade tools to shape hot steel into a variety of architectural and ornamental objects for public, commercial, and private settings.

For more information about this event, please call Nicole Heath at 315.686.4123 x200 or email Nicole at Nicole@tiartscenter.org.
