2017 Wood Show

2017 Wood Show

WOOD : Sculpted   Fired   Carved   Painted

Continuing in the gallery until October 25th, 2017

We are honoring the attributes of WOOD during October.  Wood-fired pottery, wood carved and sculpted critters, birds and snakes [!].  Chiselled wood and wood block ‘quilts’. We are also introducing our newest artist: Bernard Gore, who carves, sculpts and paints wood to create fresh yet iconic imagery. Artists featured are Neil Cobb, Kent Ambler, Marion Kaminkow, Michael Banks, Ivy Billiot, Lonnie & Twyla Money and Minnie Adkins. The wood-fired potters included are Shawn Ireland, Kim Ellington & Michel Bayne.

Every show we produce is exciting, this particular show, whose premise is simple, is nuanced, textural and grand in its imaginative scope.  If we can answer questions, or if you would like to purchase something, just call us at: 828-281-2134.

Remember to check of each of these artists’ individual pages on our website, too.
