Furniture Intensive instructor Brian Reid is in the fellowship this month working on a piece which will be shown at The Gallery at Somes Sound this fall. The show will feature Brain's work alongside that of his woodworking students from the Maine Prison Program. Brian's project is being funded by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission.

The Art of Wood

Gilded Jacques Pieces

Students in our "Turned, Carved, and Gilded Spoons" Workshop taught by Jacques Vesery (whose pieces are shown above) have been exploring techniques used to create artistic effects on sculptural objects in wood. Using spoons and bowls as a jumping-off point, they have been turning, carving, burning, gilding, texturing, and painting their creations. It’s great to see such well-executed examples of unusual surface treatment and decoration, and it looks like a lot of fun!

Current Student Work in the Messler Gallery 4/15 - 5/25

on .

It is so thrilling to see the incredible work the Nine-month Comprehensive students have created in one place. Each year we watch the hard work and energy, the experiments, challenges, and occasional failures that the students have to push through and learn from in order to produce finished work; and each year it is a delight to walk into the Messler Gallery, the day before the student show opens, and witness the astounding payoff.

 

Current Student Work is open until May 25th. Don't miss it!
