You don’t see it much anymore: Yard Art.
Deer, chickens, giant eagles, cannons, soldiers --- all hand painted, all made of concrete.
Mark Garrison visited Tammy Stone and her gallery of cement creations for Charlotte At Six. He found an adorable dalmation in a fire hat and a five-foot tall monkey in a purple suit. Yes, all carefully created in concrete.
Yard Art used to be everywhere, before the days of subdivisions and their stuffy rules that put a damper on what people can display in their yards. But at Stone Art of Frog Pond, the tradition is alive and well --- for people who want to express themselves in a concrete way.
Frog Pond, by the way, is a wide place in the road, on Highway 24-27 between Albemarle and Charlotte.
