The Flathead Valley Community College Art Department will welcome award-winning artist David Secrest of Somers for an exhibition opening featuring his original iron and steel works. The exhibit opening will be held October 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the FVCC Art Gallery inside the Arts & Technology building on the college’s Kalispell campus.

 

Secrest creates sculpture and commissioned metal work from his personally-designed and constructed foundry and forging studio in Somers. His works have been showcased in various exhibitions across the United States and into Canada.

 

“I’m really excited to have his show on our campus,” said FVCC Art Department Assistant Professor David Regan, noting that Secrest works with iron like it is taffy.

 

Free and open to the public, the exhibit will remain open for public viewing through November 20. Pieces of Secrest’s works will be available for purchase.
