“Against the Grain”, showcases the timeless art of woodworking. On display from August 4 through September 8, 2023, this exhibition brings together a group of talented wood workers who showcase their mastery through a display of furniture, sculpture, utilitarian objects, and more. As we delve into the realm of woodworking, we are reminded of the profound significance it holds in our society today and throughout history. Wood working not only preserves ancient craftsmanship techniques, but it also embodies a timeless connection to nature and the earth. In an era dominated by mass production and technological advancements, this exhibition serves as a gentle rebellion against the grain. It celebrates the unique qualities of wood as a medium and showcases the unparalleled artistry and innovation that can be achieved through skilled hands and meticulous attention to detail.

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, August 4th from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. We invite you to experience the warmth, beauty, and enduring presence of wood, as it continues to shape our lives. This event will be free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.
