Where and When
Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Location: Artmobile (across from 3D Arts Building)
Planned in collaboration with the Center for Art in Wood (formerly the Wood Turning Center), this exhibition features 32 objects made by local, regional and international artists. It examines the nature of wood – the distinctive qualities of different species – and explores its use as a medium for creative expression. Woodworking techniques such as turning, carving, burning and painting are presented for their expressive qualities. Visitors encounter a multisensory experience as our Educator demonstrates wood turning on a lathe. Through the use of iPads mounted through the exhibit, visitors have the option to select among a variety of videos of featured artists and programs that reinforce or expand on concepts presented in the exhibition. Manipulative displays of joining techniques, as well as wood samples and objects to touch, round out the interactive aspect of the exhibition. For more information, visit www.bucks.edu/artmobile.
