Outside the Circle: Indiana Woodturning

April 14, 2012 - June 17, 2012
Outside the Circle: Woodturning in Indiana celebrates the beauty and creativity of contemporary wood objects that were turned on a lathe.  Beginning as practical pieces made by hobbyists, woodturning has matured through experimentation to works of art made with purely aesthetic aims; the art form has drastically evolved beyond candlesticks and bedposts!   While some pieces remain utilitarian, others are truly “˜art for art’s sake.’  This juried exhibition will feature artists living and creating across the state of Indiana and pieces that take a range and variety of forms, figures, and functions.  Take a peek at what happens when we let the chips fly!
