Opening Reception for "Born From Wood: The Niagara Frontier Woodcarvers

  • Date:  April 29, 2019
  • Time:  4:30pm – 6:30pm

From the first rough cut to the final finishing touch, every woodcarving is a journey: a path of thought, intent, and action behind every movement of blade against wood.

Born from Wood: The Niagara Frontier Wood Carvers features the woodworks of thirteen members of the Niagara Frontier Wood Carvers club. This exhibit provides a glimpse into the tools, techniques, meanings, and materials found in wood carving and wood burning: from caricatures and relief carvings to figurative sculptures and ‘unburned’ artworks.

Born from Wood: The Niagara Frontier Wood Carvers is curated by Niagara University students in the Art History with Museum Studies course AHM357A: Exhibiting Cultures in collaboration with the Niagara Frontier Wood Carvers.
