Isn't It Iron

Call us metalheads, but from big-name acts like steel and iron to copper and aluminum, we enjoy artists that bring the heat and break the mold.

Artist Kevin Hummelgard uses high-heat processes to bend, break, and transform rigid iron into something completely new. In his first solo show, “Iron Interpretation,” Hummelgard takes a closer look into the properties of this hard metal and delivers his own interpretation, a juxtaposition of jagged yet graceful, rugged yet refined.

Check out the opening reception to view the new series, meet with the artist, and shop Practical Art’s wide selection of 100 percent locally made artisan goods.

“Iron Interpretation” is open through August 31 at Practical Art, 5070 North Central Avenue. An artist reception takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. First Friday, August 2. Admission is free. Call 602-264-1414 or visit

Mondays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Aug. 1. Continues through Aug. 31, 2013
