Sculptural welding artist, Jason Schultz, is a master of both the monumental and the intimate. You might find him handling a 600-pound hanging mobile of reclaimed industrial metals (seen on the left) or maybe, something more personal, like a decorative necklace adorned with deer antlers.
Or, he might be inspired to do a ‘drip and splash’ scene on the canvas of an antique door – an aesthetic similar to Pollock. Wherever his imagination takes him, his abstract pieces aim to please.
Dozens of visitors attended the gallery show at Wellington’s Herbs and Spices in Schoharie County on Sunday. A larger-than-life size gecko piece could be found crawling out of the main pond. A floppy-eared pup made of nuts and bolts sat on the cafe bench. Depending on interpretation, one of Schultz’s outdoor pieces (and my favorite) could be a daisy or a blazing sun. Either way, portions of his sales go to support the Farm to School Project in Schoharie and that’s always a good thing.
