So, I met a famous #sculpture today! I drove by this place with metal sculptures everywhere, done a U-Turn and went back to see if I could take pictures! He welcomed me and #MyDogCharlie and said he loves people to stop by and appreciate his art work. (Charlie & Gordon's 2 dogs became friends). Researching to post about this place, he's famous! Has a #Wikipedia page and he is feature in many #museums and his #sculptures are auctioned off and some sold online. There's also magazine articles and stuff about him.
He has some amazing Sculptures at his studio in #Carrollton , #Georgia (where I was passing thru), but seems he has many displayed around the US.

He attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture before receiving a BFA in sculpture from Syracuse University (1974) and an MFA in sculpture from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (1975). Chandler creates kimonos, usable furniture, and various sculptures out of salvaged metal.
Chandler has been working in metal for most of his career. His works are included in renowned museums and private collections, and he’s enjoyed solo exhbitions around the world. He has sculptures at The Chattahoochee Valley Art Museum (LaGrange, Georgia), the Honolulu Museum of Art, the National Ornamental Metal Museum (Memphis, Tennessee), and the Runnymede Sculpture Farm (Woodside, California)
Gordon often works outside, gathering materials from salvage yards.
