It has been said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Artist Ben Herrington takes that one step further by transforming wood that others discard into distinctive birdhouse sculptures that straddle the line between function and art.
The Nesbitt Gallery is scheduled to host an artist’s reception for Birdhouse…Funhouse, an exhibit of Herrington’s work, beginning at 7 p.m. on June 15. Herrington is expected to be in attendance to answer questions about his work.
