Exhibition Overview

This group exhibition showcases the craftsmanship of three woodworkers who challenge the notion of the wooden vessel. John Mydock airbrushes wooden vessels with multiple layers and colors of catalyzed polyurethane that is then buffed and highly polished. For his Green series, Francisco Clemente reworks scraps of plywood into whimsically shaped vessels that are stained in bright colors or natural tones. Pat Kramer describes his process as a continuous dialogue between himself and the wood during which the work is constantly reinventing itself.
