For those of you on the East Coast (specifically North Carolina), later this month several pieces of my work will be part of an exhibition called Create: The Mysterious Art of Wood, “an exhibit about the patterns and figures, the colors and textures, and the form, proportion, and spirit that all converge in each wood creation to tell a unique story.” The exhibition will run from March 25 to April 20 at Cape Fear Studios in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It will feature regional, national, and international artists, including Stuart Mortimer, Jacques Vesery, Ron Kent, Howard Schroeder, and me, of course, and will include turned objects, carved objects, boxes, furniture, even jewelry.

If you’re in the area, please check it out. The opening reception will be held Thursday, March 25th, from 6 to 9 p.m.
