Gilbert McCann is married, has three children and six grandchildren. He studied at Mott Community College, in Flint Michigan, and at Yavapai Community College in Prescott Arizona. One of Gil's proudest accomplishments is the installation and dedication of one of his works, called Spike, in the city of Yuma, AZ during the celebration of ARTbeat5 2012. In his spare time, Gil enjoys gardening, playing drums with local bands and spending time with his family. ARTIST STATEMENT Throughout my life I have always been aware that I have a unique and unusual way of perceiving the world around me. I was blessed with a talent to express this through art. After the use of several mediums, I have found that metal holds the key to unlock my creativity. Just as metal is strong and rigid, it can also be soft and pliable. And, with heat and hammer, it can even be made to dance!
