Velo Arte Contest
The VOTES are in!
Local artists and community members have completed their art pieces with our new and old bikes and parts. Check them out in the video below!
The first place winner ($200 Sharing Wheels Gift Certificate) is: Diana Halar – Catch All Entry Table –Table made out of salvaged, vintage, reclaimed wood and glass wrapped with bike tires. Table frame made out of bike rims. For an extra artist’s touch, the bottom shelf is a hand made glass art mosaic of a bicyclist. The tires of the mosaic are made out of bike chain pieces grouted into the glass. Battery operated LED string lights under the mosaic to enhance the beauty of the glass.
The second place winner ($50 Sharing Wheels Gift Certificate) is: Carole Williams – Moon Time – “Moon Time” pays homage to our renewed interest in moon travel after 50 years. Bead adorned bicycle spokes create the thirteen hours and two spokes are set at the time 11:11. Bike chain links adorn the vintage lid moon and it is wrapped in a bicycle tire. Mounted on a 16×20 acrylic pour canvas in black and silver. A green alien and super glue are mounted on the “dark side of the moon”. Safe journey.
