Proud Of East Texas: Randy Martin

By Joan Hallmark

Randy Martin's "Flying Fish Gallery" is the first of a growing number of shops helping to make the town of Ben Wheeler a destination spot for visitors. Six artists are featured in the gallery ranging from jewelry to hand made furniture and pottery. But it is Martin's metal art that is the neucleus of the gallery.

Martin turned to art in the nineties when he lost his white collar job and found that the life of an artist suited him. He opened his "Flying Fish Gallery" in March and says being a part of Ben Wheeler's rebirth is a "dream come true".
