artist Dale LewisGet to Know Dale Lewis!

Artist Dale Lewis is a Hastings Resident currently participating in the 2016 River City Sculpture Tour in Hastings, Prescott, and Stillwater. His work can also be found in many other cities across the country.

“I’m an Electrical Tech. and Machinist who worked for a specialized machine builder. After leaving the work force, I found myself with time to experiment with making mosaic sculptures. Eight years ago I bought equipment and started making welded metal sculptures.  My hobby has become a fulltime obsession for me. I try to make each piece entertaining, one recurring comment I hear from people is that my art makes them smile. That’s what makes it fun! There’s no turning back now, this is what I want to do, when I grow up!”
