Photo of the Day: "Feelin' Older" at the Workhouse Arts Center
"You become what you think about all day long." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Patch stopped by the Workhouse Arts Center to check out the latest pieces on display, and we were struck by "Feelin' Older," a mid-range stoneware sculpture with horse hair by artist Brian Grow.
In "Feelin' Older," the man looks stiff and sad, as if he's looking into a mirror and doesn't quite know what to make of his appearance.
"He's just a guy who's not got any hair on top, and he's looking to plug it. And now he's realizing where all the time has gone," said Grow. "So, he's a little depressed."
"Feelin Older" is 30 inches tall and is priced at $1,100.
Grow, who moved to Falls Church this spring, spent 10 years teaching at Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia. He works about 30 hours a week at his studio in Building 8 at the Workhouse, and his pieces range from $25 to $5,000.
