Good Wood/Wood Works: Contemporary Wooden Art & Craft
21 January - 7 April
Riverside Gallery, Old Town Hall, Richmond
The aim of this quirky open exhibition is change the public’s perception of this marginalised medium and to conceptually take wood out of the garden shed, the craft fair and the new age festival to showcase the skill, efforts, talent, imagination and innovation involved.
Artists and makers from across the UK have submitted a variety of items - from the sacred to the secular - including furniture, pyrography (wooden items created with fire), turned wood, carvings, whittled objects, treenware, boxes, clocks, relief carvings, marquetry, misericords and ecclesiastical objects for this exciting exhibition.
