This dynamic art exhibit opens on Friday, August 4th and continues through Saturday, August 26th. David Klinger creates the basic mask form using layers of recycled paper and cloth, at times built around chicken wire, wire cloth, clay, aluminum, cardboard, and various face form armatures. For bonding the substrate, the artist uses non mold-supporting adhesives like PVA and adds plaster of paris for hardness and strength. The completed form is then air dried and sealed with acrylic modeling paste and gesso. Elizabeth Darrow uses oil and acrylic paint for color and various materials such as silk scarves, beads and stones, dryer lint, feathers, and branches, to bring each mask to life.
