Enchanting tool art on display
January 28, 2021
UNIONTOWN - A new art exhibit will open Feb. 4 featuring the works of Rachael Eastman.
"Tools: Their Cleaver Enchantment" will be on display in Dahmen Barn will run from Feb. 4-28; the barn is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Sunday.
Visitors can meet the artist from 1-3 p.m. Feb. 7.
Eastman uses watercolor as a medium for creating the appearance of the wear and tear a tool sustains.
In her works, she mimics the rust-like textures using the wet-on-wet process, capturing a tool as it exists.
The life of a tool can be lengthy, passing through a variety of owners, she said.
