July 4 to July 28, 2019 — Gallery Show in Marysville, KS
Robert Kloppenborg, a Marysville resident and member of Flint Hills Woodturners, suggested approaching Lee Dam Center for Fine Art in Marysville about hosting a show of Flint Hills Woodturners’ wood turnings. Named for Lee Dam, the husband of Betty Dam who donated the building to the city as an art center, it is in the heart of Marysville and the pride of the town. Our show there is called Wood in the Round: The Art of Woodturning.
June 29th and July 1st were set up days for our show at the Center, 201 S 9th Street in Marysville, KS. Eight club members and three wives came to help arrange tables, arrange art work, suggest how best to display our woodturning efforts, and generally prepare the gallery for a month-long display open to the public. Days the gallery will be open are Thursdays, 1 to 4, Saturdays, 10 to 4, and Sundays, 1 to 4, but will be closed on July 25th. Participating members are Randy Zelenka, Victor Schwarz, Dale Nester, Sandra McIntyre, Melissa McIntyre, Robert Kloppenborg, Bob Holcombe, Ross Hirst, Colton Haug, Vaughn Graber, Ned Gatewood, Peter Dorhout, Tom Boley, Dennis Biggs, and Steve Bietau. An Artists Reception will be held on Sunday afternoon the 7th from 2 to 4 in the gallery among the tables displaying our work. That is a great time for the public to visit a gallery show as they can both admire the art as well as visit with those artists which are able to attend.
