Local artist closing studio

Market pressure forcing move

CHENEY – An internationally known sculptor will be closing his studio soon as he prepares to move to Wenatchee.

He also has a project in the works that would bring a piece of his art to Liberty Lake, but market pressure and material expenses make these projects difficult.

Warrington explained it is affecting his ability to land current jobs.

"I have a potential client in Liberty Lake that is looking at a large bronze sculpture install," Warrington said. "Well, I just called, and it will cost $22,500 for 1,000 pounds of the metal."

Warrington said there is a big difference in the art market now...
