News of what is going on with our members
July 4 to July 28, 2019 — Gallery Show in Marysville, KS, ends a week early
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 was called Wood in the Round: The Art of Woodturning.
Participating members were 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 was held on Sunday afternoon the 7th from 2 to 4 in the gallery among the tables displaying our work. That was a great time for the public to visit and they did as they could both admire the art as well as visit with those artists who were able to attend.
Unfortunately, because of a scheduling conflict, the gallery asked us to close our exhibit a week early as they had an annual dinner planned for the following weekend and they needed the tables which we were using for most of our displays. While it had us scrambling a bit to get our work out of there, it was a fun show and we were able to highlight our craft to a lot of people. Robert was the gallery-sitter for most days our show was open during July and was able to explain in person what a lathe is, how it works, and about the kinds of things which can be made on a lathe. Many thanks to the gallery director and staff for making your facility available to us and for the great food and drink at the Artists Reception.
