One of a kind recycled & repurposed metal art

Josh Daily is a Portland, Oregon based metal and found material sculpture artist who has been working in the medium for over 20 years. He creates animals, human figures, and hybrid mythical creatures from recycled and repurposed materials in a brutalist/primitive style. He uses a variety of materials from all kinds of metal, to construction waste, to everyday household items. Often it entails getting to the guts of things like old vacuum cleaners, typewriters, or any type of mechanical device. Taking things apart usually takes longer than building the sculpture itself. He likes to use old conduit, plastic material, or anything that will take decades to biodegrade - if at all.

When looking for art supplies, Josh says, "in everyday life it is a constant secondary thought process. For example as I'm walking down the street or sitting with a group of people I'm constantly studying my surroundings. I see everyday objects and think that would make a great eye, knee, or if I cut that piece of metal I could make it look feathers. That whatchamacallit would make a great base for a coffee table. I am at the mercy of my material."

    An amazing show and sale of regional artists who use upcycled material....things most of us would consider unusable and therefore trash. This is a juried show which means all work is top quality, but all price points are represented, from $1 to over $1000. Friday evening will be a very special event, a Sip and Shop. Yes, there is a $25 admission. You will receive two drink tickets and have access to light munchies, but the best part, beyond first dibs at the artists' tables, will be the Recycled Fashion Show. 5pm-8pm Saturday is free and open to the public. Amazing to see. This is an event where you can bring somethng very special and unique home or a gift for someone special. 10m-4pm
