Chart rginia IE--July 30, 1972 'Found Art' Fashionable "Found Art" is a term art critics have given to ordinary objects of intrinsic (although seldom recognized) beauty. This is nothing new--women have been doing it for centuries--taking commonplace things and transforming them into ornaments. Men, too, got into the act early- making bone necklaces, sharks tooth amulets, and feathered war bonnets. In recent centuries, in western civilization, decoration has largely been the province of the female. However, a sense of the artistic is not the exclusive property of either gender. Photographer Jack Tiernan of Newspaper Agency Corporation turned his eye for form and function to the fashioning of some accessories from everyday materials. The accompanying photos show what he did. All except the miniature basket made of a peach pit, that's several . generations old. Most of the models are newspaper employes--except for Janet Callison who's pictured wearing a pine cone earring. She's the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Callison. Janet is head majorette at East Bank High School, a member of the student council and belongs to the National Honor Society and Junior Senate.
