Live Ice Sculpting in your Hometown.

And it's not even New Year's Eve.

In case you weren't able to get out and 'artwalk' tonight, here are a couple shots from the front steps of the Old Town Hall, home of the Easthampton City Arts Gallery and Elusie Gallery. Local art hero Trace Meek tries his hand, and chainsaw, at ice sculpting. He looked like a pro out there, hard to believe it was his first time in the ice medium. Nice job Trace.

Adding to the ambiance was a cool set of ice votives, created by Easthampton's own, Kristin Angel.
One more of Trace, working his magic with the chainsaw...

There were a bunch of people out for the ArtWalk tonight. Great to see. The ArtWalks should get better and better as we slowly rid ourselves of winter. And it won't be long before we start seeing cool painted bears all about town. Easthampton BearFest (fyi: the bear website was also created by Trace the ice sculpure guy). More on that soon...
