Nick Schmiedler lawn art
I first encountered Nick Schmiedler's folk art at Art Tougeau - Lawrence, Kansas' annual wheeled-art parade and wheel-apalooza. While researching the vehicles entered in Art Tougeau, I learned that Nick has created many other unique art features.
The Lawrence home of Cindy and Nick Schmiedler has been turned into a grassroots environment. The various interesting mobiles, statues and unusual fence shown here can all be seen from the street and sidewalk, without entering the Schmiedler's yard.
Nick has no formal art education, but writes that he has been tinkering with found, salvaged and natural objects for decades. He is a member of the Lawrence Art Guild in 2008 and produces art for show and sale. He also does commissions.
