WARRENSBURG — The public is invited to join members of Mid-Missouri Artists, Inc. at their Thursday, March 30, meeting which will feature a program by Bill Brackett, of Cole Camp, where he will explain and demonstrate how he creates beautiful works of art from steel sheets.

Brackett develops his designs by studying photographs, specimens, and illustrations. Individual parts of each sculpture are plasma cut from a sheet of steel and prepared. Without heat, he shrinks, stretches, and pushes the steel free hand using many unique hand and motorized tools to the desired form. Everything is welded or bolted together along with solid or tubular stems to compose the final work.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Arts and Crafts Room of the Warrensburg Community Center, 445 E. Gay. All MMA meetings are free and open to the public. Note: Everyone should enter the building through the main entrance and then go left to the Arts and Crafts Room.

For more information about MMA, go to www.midmissouriartists.webs.com or call Rebecca Limback at 429-2446.
