Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art

Exhibition Website

Jan 24 2017 - Mar 11 2017

On display in the IP Casino Resort Spa Exhibitions Gallery

In the mid-20th century, the ancient craft of wood-turning was transformed into a dynamic contemporary art form by a new breed of innovative American wood artists. Since then, pioneering artists have expanded their interest beyond functional objects to produce vessels and other sculptural forms that expressed their highly individualized aesthetic concerns. 

The works in this installation show the originality and skill of contemporary wood artists.
