Art Reception – Turning Wood: The Art of the Woodturner V

October 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join Arboretum staff and members of the Woodturning clubs for this evening reception. Talk to the artists about the exhibition and the wonderful work on view. Enjoy refreshments in the Hunnewell Visitor Center.

Woodturning has a long history, going back to 1300 BC Egypt. Unique in relation to most woodworking, due to its use of a lathe, woodturners turn out practical, functional pieces or “turn” to the purely aesthetic. Each craftsman brings their own personal artistic vision to the objects they create, and the pieces in maple, cherry, and other wood from far and near (look for work turned from Arnold Arboretum deaccessioned trees), offer a unique look at the “personality” within the wood itself.

The three woodturning associations, as well as Harvard Woodturning students, have come together for the fifth Arnold Arboretum exhibition, bringing their own creativity and technical expertise, displaying more than 60 unique pieces for utilitarian use and aesthetic enjoyment. Join us as members demonstrate their skill working the lathe throughout the weekend.

Free, public invited
