The Arts for ACT Gallery featured three artists, and the first of them represented was Dale Weber. Weber is a mixed media/found objects artist who has been searching for the significant hidden within the insignificant. The art of Dale Weber reveals an inner beauty of the mundane. Weber's art is a vehicle for the overlooked, abandoned, and forgotten elements within today's society.
