About the Artist
Sally Colby creates her whimsical robot-like sculptures from found objects. A self proclaimed Tinker, Sally claims she is “inspired by a long time love of kitsch and other old stuff”. Sally’s artwork is a combination of recycling and child’s play. Her lifelong interest in the arts and the creative process, plus her ability to be a discerning scavenger, couples with her sense of humor as shown in the creatures she creates. Sally Colby is a member of the Allegany Arts Council and the Allegany Area Arts Alliance. She and her husband reside in Cumberland
The Artist’s Work
My found object robot sculptures are inspired by retro space collectables from the 1950’s. Mostly made from vintage metal objects, old cameras, and vintage meters, hey are a combination of kitsch and whimsy. I don’t take the pieces seriously and hope they will make the viewer smile. This year, I will also be expanding my found object art to include metallic fish. I will also be exhibiting some of my newfound passion–colorful, abstract fluid acrylic painting.
