"Stone Hinged" (stoneware, wire, metal, wood, rock)
Artisans Road Trip participant Hank Hall from Spirit Lake is currently showing a new body of mixed media work at the Nobles County Art Center in Worthington, MN through July 19.
Titled “What’s Inside My Head? Mixed Media Work of Hank Hall,” his exhibit presents recent work inspired by countless bits and pieces of hardware, natural and found objects, and household paints and glues which surround him in his workshop. He thrives on the “what ifs” that arise as he experiments with materials during the creative process. The results often beg the question, “What’s inside his head?”
"Permed" (stoneware, metal, rubber)
Hall is a clay and mixed media specialist whose teapots and “teapotish” sculptures have been recognized in juried exhibits across the country. A retired high school art educator and later an owner of a local art gallery/studio, Hall now focuses on new ideas in his home workshop called Tin Bin Studio on East Lake Okoboji. His artistic goal is to make a statement that meets his personal aesthetic, and if others get a kick out of it, he says, “It doesn’t get any better than that.”
"Spring Frost" (stoneware, hot glue)
The Nobles County Art Center is located in the Worthington Public Library on the lower level at 407 12th Street in Worthington, MN and is open Monday-Friday from noon until 3:00. For more information about the NCAC or Hall’s exhibit, call 507-372-8245.
Hall will open his studio to the public during the Artisans Road Trip October 12-13 and invites the public to take the free, self-guided tour of Northwest Iowa artists’ studios and galleries representing their work. Most items on the tour are available for purchase. Go to for the 2019 brochure with map.
