A Judy Bales' sculpture is on display at Old Capitol Museum.
Bales, who lives in Fairfield, will begin her presentation with a slide show featuring examples of her work and the works of other contemporary artists who explore the concept of making art from found, recycled or reclaimed materials. The second half of the workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to create their own works of art under Bales’ direction.
