Join us for a guided tour of our current exhibition, Spoons to Stir the Soul: The World of Norm Sartorius. Spoons to Stir the Soul is the first career retrospective exhibition celebrating the life and work of extraordinary wood carver Norm Sartorius. In a career spanning more than 40 years, he has literally carved a niche for himself, opening new doors for creative possibilities in the material of wood. The exhibition includes many of Sartorius’s finest works, selected from some of the premier private and public collections in the United States. The show traces the dynamic evolution of the artist’s creative expressions, from his earliest efforts as a professional woodworker in the 1970s to his commitment to the spoon as a fine-art category in the 1980s and ‘90s, and culminating with his current mature vision, aesthetic refinement, and woodworking mastery—all of which have produced a unique and deeply soul-stirring oeuvre of art-in-wood.
This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
