CLAYTON — William L. Salisbury, 72, who created legendary metal creations that are dotted around the north country and who also forged a reputation with his warmth, wit, conversation and his own personal mettle, died Tuesday morning a few days after entering Hospice care.

“The north country art world has lost an invaluable contributor and resource,” said Marina S. Loew, curator at Thousand Islands Arts Center, Clayton, where in 2020, its gallery hosted, “Will Salisbury, Sculptor, a Retrospective.”
