“The heart is a representation of love and the gears represents function and motion and what that tells me every day is to never forget to put my love into action.”

It’s made of scraped wood and metal washers.

“People will be very impressed with the work. It doesn’t look like high school; these works look like it was done by college and professional artists,” co-chair Lynne Pribis said.

The exhibition will be open to the public through Sunday, Feb. 26, at the Montgomery County Guild of Professional Artists  at SPP Galleries in West Conshohocken.
