Midwest Woodworkers to Host 4th Annual Art Show
Woodworking talent abounds in this area. To celebrate local artists Midwest Woodworkers will again be hosting a one day art show and sale. Free and open to the public, the show will be held on Saturday, August 17th, 2013 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Local woodworkers will be exhibiting and selling a diverse mix of hand crafted art objects made of wood. “We have some incredibly talented woodworkers in this area” says Gerry Phelan, the owner of Midwest Woodworkers, “and this is a way to showcase their work.” The show will feature an array of woodworking specialties including turned vases and bowls, segmented turning and exotic wood boxes, furniture, wooden toys, violins and pool cues. You will be amazed at the artistry and craftsmanship that will be on display. Dennis Zongker will be exhibiting the hand-made boxes that are the basis for his book; Wooden Boxes: Skill Building Techniques for Seven Unique Projects. Special signed copies of the book can be pre-ordered at a discounted price at the show. The public is welcome to enjoy the show, view the exhibits and meet and talk with the artists. To help attendees connect with the workmanship of the artists there will be live woodworking demonstrations going on all day.
