Local Artist Contributes to Special Projects

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

We had a special local artist, Rebekah Alexander, collaborate with us for this wonderful banjo.

A little history: Rebekah is the wife of James Alexander.

James and his family have been long time family friends. As a high school student, James contributed many hours in an apprenticeship relationship here in our banjo shop.

He was a huge help as we developed our business, and continues to be interested in lutherie.

He is also a skilled musician as well as busy clock repairman. His wife Rebekah showed artistic talent at a young age, and now teaches art students in their home.

Rebekah has been a contributing artist on several banjo inlays.

So far, she has collaborated with Chuck in drawing a whimsical cat fishing, a mastiff and a cat playing with a fish.

Her next project will be a golden retriever for a custom on order.
