Indiana-based artist/sculptor Thomas L. Farris had two sculptures selected by the jurors for the 2016 “92 County Art Show” on display at the Honeywell Center’s Clark Gallery in downtown Wabash, Indiana. Farris’s works in the show include “Fork in the Road” and “Heart-Stone.” “Fork in the Road” is a whimsical sculpture that features a dinner fork sticking into a preserved chunk of asphalt from Redkey, Indiana. “Heart-Stone” is a symmetrical heart hand-carved from a block of stone using a variety of tools. The polished sculpture shows the veining, patina and natural marks of the stone. Farris is a native of Wabash and actively participates in art and photography competitions offered by the Honeywell Center, as well as many state, regional and national competitions.
