Collaborative work on display at City Hall
Woodcarving by Hank Chiappetta, Metal Sculpture by Rick Davis

Art is a part of our society that can sometimes be easily overlooked. Spokane has a lot of artists to be proud of and thankful for as they produce expressions that can really move people of the community. Art comes in many shapes, sizes, and mediums, but it has a much deeper meaning to a lot of people. Hank Chiappetta exclaims, “Art is an investment in the community,” and it has the power to bring people together. Whether it is simply to gaze upon and think about what the inspiration for a piece is or to gather with others for an intellectual conversation, art can be a community catalyst for individual expression.
In this video, Rick Davis and Hank Chiappetta discuss one of their accomplishments with us.

The Artist

Rick Davis makes metal come to life.

His methods of shaping and coloring scrap metal result in icons of nature and spirit. Rick's childhood experiences working with his auto mechanic dad in their garage in Orange County gave him a lifelong love for making things work.

Inspired by the practical and the spiritual, Rick incorporates his Celtic roots, his yoga practice, and his appreciation for Native American culture into his work. Upon relocating near the Little Spokane river in 2005, the area’s wildlife added yet another creative spark to his work.

Rick has found Spokane to be a great place to raise a family and create his art.
