SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The San Clemente Art Association will be hosting its 59th annual Arts and Crafts Fair on August 17 and 18 in downtown San Clemente. Artist-storyteller Richard Shaw will be showcasing his unique 3D Wire Art stories that utilize twister wire and mixed media.
Shaw is well-known for his one-of-a-kind storytelling technique through frames, art pieces, and sculptures. The artist uses mixed media as a means of creating his exclusive wire art and storytelling pieces. Several of the arrangements have become as ongoing series, including “Blue Planet,” “Welcome To Wire World,” “BlokHead Robots” and “Best Of The West.”
According to the press release, the 3D Wire Art experience will include short stories placed alongside Shaw’s artwork. All of Shaw’s artwork will utilize various materials and elements such as “colorful floral wire, jewelry wire, clear fishing line or even rusted rebar wire that is twisted and shaped into forms.” Backgrounds will be used as a means of accentuating the art pieces along with other accent materials, including “shaped glass, stones with unique patterns, sea shells, beach sand, sticks and other mixed media.”
The Arts and Crafts Fair will be open from 9-4 p.m. at the San Clemente Art Gallery. For additional information on the fair or the Art Association, please visit paintsanclemente.com/.
