Artists’ Reception 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, 2016
April 11 – May 25, 2016
Woodcarvers Rick Rodgers and Duane Paul, both of Duncan, OK, and Dick McGuire of Claremore, find beauty and inspiration in an uncut piece of wood. They say the wood ‘talks to them’ and guides their tools and knives for the final creation. Walking sticks, flutes, pull-toys, cradles and many more items, including home decor, all crafted from wood, were available in this show. Larry Gillette, also of Duncan, creates abstract paintings that mimic the grain of wood. His newest works were on display.
At the reception, these guys entertained with their stories, shared a few tips about their craft and Duane even provided music with one of his many flutes, which are handcrafted in the Native American tradition.
