Wood Transformed

Exhibition dates: December 2, 2017 - February 19th (or original date March 31st - more details to come)

Exhibition location: Community Gallery - View - Old Forge, NY


Wood has inspired artists for centuries to make creative sculptures and dimensional forms, decorations as well as utilitarian pieces. Since the beginning of human experience trees have been venerated in cultures and mythologies and inspired wooden carved or sculpted objects of great beauty and meaning.


The art objects in this exhibit will explore how the craft of hand turning or carving wood can be used to create works of art.  To be a work of art, the wood creations must be one-of-a-kind, original expressions of the maker’s creativity and feelings; they must demonstrate technical skill, imagination, aesthetic judgment, and attention to detail so as to achieve the fullest expression of wood as a medium.


Range of work and media:

Conceptual, spiritual, contemporary or traditional sculpture or art objects that result from wood turning, woodcarving, woodworking, wood burning, and mixed natural media (example: stone, wood, grass, twigs, branches, burls, minerals, ores)
