Artist Val Kropiwnicki
Val Kropiwnicki: “I used to tell people I fish for stripers and trout, and with a preference for that order of operations. But these days, with a little life behind me, I tell them I just like to be near water, listening. It’s my church.
With my artwork it is much the same. I used to tell them I’m a sculptor; I make functional steel. But these days, I just tell them I like to make things.”
