Wood is front and center at Gallery 360 in April and May. Wood turned on lathes by eight diverse craftsmen from two area woodturning clubs. Wood of all sorts turned into hollow forms, bowls, platters, and just about anything else eight brains, sixteen hands, a few lathes and some chisels can carve.
Join us Friday evening from 6 til 10 as we open 'Turnings: The Art and Function of Turned Wood,' featuring works by Vernon Oberle, John Wilkins, Ken Glasscock, Charles Kokes, Gene Sperling, Bob Revell, Tim Hogan and Dick Easter. It's 2nd Friday Art Night downtown, so put us on your itinerary.
PS - We have a last minute addition to the roster of woodworkers: Leslie Dykes.
Thanks to everyone who came out last night to hear Jessica Otto's poetry, and special thanks to Jess for the wonderful reading. Our friend S.J. Tucker streamed the event on her USTREAM channel, which is archived for the time being here. Things get underway at about 21:30. Jess breaks around 47:30, then returns about 1:18:00.
It's hard to say just how Jess Otto shapes words into poetry. Undoubtedly, she plays with our senses. Her poems can be touched, smelled and tasted. They are elemental, but far from elementary. Sometimes her images reveal themselves gradually over time and sometimes they streak across the sky like comets.
Jessica will be sharing her poetry with us this Saturday evening from 7 to 8:30. You are invited to hear her and piece together her magic for yourself. It's free and open, so come support spoken word in Little Rock. This is also the last chance to view 'Fascination,' featuring the art of Anna Tanner and Kelley Naylor Wise.
