Gleaning at the City Dump #12
Interesting old tools seem to show up on a daily basis at the Transfer Station. For a mixed media/assemblage artist like myself, these are like finding gold in those piles of trash. I haven't seen a hand drill like this in several years...I believe that my Dad used to have one in his stash of tools. I'm really not in any kind of "competition" with the other four artists for this kind of stuff, as none of them would likely use these things in their work. The five of us were chosen for this art grant specifically with our different "directions" in mixed media, yet, we seem to all compliment each other nicely. I glean specifically for my own needs, but I'm also helping the other artists find what they need...old wigs for one artist...old crocheted afghans for another, etc.
