Iron Willow has recently expanded to a large location and now includes exquisite works by 30 very talented artists along with the hand forged sculptures of Thomas Tankersley. Barbara Tankersley operates the gallery and hand picks each piece, decorating the space in a way you can imagine the art in your own home or business.
The gallery showcases a wide variety of work, with something for most everyone's taste and budget. In addition to Tankersley's metal sculpture, we also feature works by Aurora Aguirre whose large acrylic paintings on canvas are finished in a glasslike presentation.
