Opening Reception; Friday, December 5th from 6-10pm in conjunction with South 4thStreet Trolley Hop.  Special musical performance by singer-songwriter, Brigid Kaelin. 
In the vein of the 18th century practice of Tole Painting, the folk art of decorative painting on tin and wooden utensils, objects and furniture, local and regional artists use the hand saw or saw blade as a canvas and a source for inspiration. Artists embellished an existing hand saw or saw blade or used their own artistic technique to create a replica of the tool from another material.
