We all know that different types of paints can create beautiful artwork, but artwork in the form of paint tubes? That’s exactly what Beechwood Metalworks is in the process of creating as one of their recent projects. Just like many other special requests, we can truly create whatever you can imagine.
Cary Worthy, Executive Director of Alamance Arts, dreamed up this design to go along with their sign which will be permanently placed outside of the Alamance Arts building. These large, vibrate, realistic, metal, art tubes are 6 foot long and around 2 feet in diameter and as beautiful as they are, they aren’t just for decoration. Cary states that these paint tubes came as an inspiration to tie together the exterior of the Arts Council with their signage and aesthetic appeal.
Each of the 3 tubes have been sponsored in honor or memory of a group or individual. The “Lenny’s Yellow” will be displayed in honor of Emily Lewis’, co-owner of Beechwood Metalworks, late father. The other 2 pieces have been donated by the Thor Foundation and all 3 include the donor’s name and choice of color.
We hope that you will stop by the Alamance Arts Council in the coming weeks to take a peek at these beautiful paint tubes and enjoy them each time you drive down Main Street in Graham. Beechwood Metalworks specializes in custom requests, even when it’s turning paint into art – literally!
