There is a process that every artist employs when creating works of art. It is a method that is uniquely ones own, and that method is revealed during the progress of creation – from concept to signature. To be inside the artists studio while they create their work is nothing short of inspiring.
The ITE residents are now in high gear at The University of the Arts studios. Drawings, rough cut concepts, tools and shavings – lots of shavings – all lay strewn about the place. Amongst the flurry of evidence, one can see several curious objects emerging from the fray. Many of these will wind up being exhibited at The allTurnatives: form + spirit opening on August 6th at the Wood Turning Center. Download the August 6th press release or directions to the Center.
Join us next weekend – Saturday, July 17th 2010 – when the studio will be open to the public for a rare glimpse into the world of creating wood art.
