Artist Terry Klausman turns barbed wire into art.

What some may think of as old and worn, Terry Klausman thinks of as works of art. Klausman, of Barberton, is a metal fabricator in his day job, but when not at Neidert Fabricating, he is working on projects, many in which he calls “found object assembly.” As the name implies, works of art are assembled from objects never intended to go together, such as a table leg, a piston from an engine, a baseball bat, parts of a sewing machine, an animal skull, to list just a few. “My process in doing sculpture is I go to my stash and I grab pieces and I lay it on the floor until I feel it’s starting to work together and starting to come together, working as a design, because my art is design-based, or formal,” Klausman said.

the life, the story, to speak from the objects,” he said. Klausman’s art also includes welded steel sculpting and colored pencil drawings. One theme he has been exploring in his drawings appears simple in concept, barbed wire, but in execution is more than drawing a straight line. Klausman draws strands of barbed wire across a page of black paper, creating a complicated design. His barbed wire art was noticed by Mitchell Kahan, recently retired director of the Akron Art Museum. Klausman said Kahan told him he had never seen anything like it and wondered when Klausman

was going to have a show at the Harris Stanton Gallery in Akron. That led to a call from Meg Harris of the gallery and Klausman’s barbed wire drawings will be showcased in an exhibit at the gallery, June 14 to July 13. Klausman creates his art at Summit Artspace on E. Market Street in downtown Akron. A gallery show titled “ Time Capsule” and curated by Klausman at Artspace is to open January of 2015. It will feature Klausman’s art as well as that of Gwen Waight and Bret Hines, who he said were the inspiration to move into sculpting.
