Woodturning examples showcased at aquarium

The show features stunning craftsmanship of wooden vases, bowls, platters and even a cowboy hat. Artisans use the natural beauty of the wood – visible grain patterns, fungi spalting, irregular defects – to add to the character of many of the works.

The skilled craftsmen create their art by rotating, or “turning,” a piece of wood between two points while using a cutting tool to create a desired shape.

Artists showcased in the exhibit include: Dennis Belcher, Bob Doughtery, Russell E. Gray, Jack O’Connor, Byron Rosbrugh, Bob Post, Ward Holdridge and Jim Stoveken.

“Woodturning” will be on exhibit through Dec. 1.
