Display: Metal Bots
The Metal Bots display is provided by Brenda Spilios.
From the artist: "In the summer of 2013, I viewed a special exhibit at the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala called "Art of the Robot." I became smitten with the robot-inspired sculptures made from vintage objects and metal scraps on display. I thought to myself, "I can do this!"
I came home and set about creating my own sculptures, calling them whimbots (whimsical robots.) I started browsing antique shops, charity stores and the family garage for interesting metal pieces. I love using pieces that are tarnished, rusted, and battered because I find them charming.
I became adept at using a drill press and a hack saw in order to assemble my creations. I do no welding or soldering. Each work of art comes together like a complex puzzle; I use nuts and bolts and screws and my imagination. I have fun making them and my hope is that they are fun to look at.
I retired from teaching five years ago after 34 years in the profession. I have lived with my family in Inverness since 1986."
