A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Bill Wallace, a fellow member of the Wake Forest Area Artists' Studio Tour. Bill is a skilled wood turner and carver. This is an art form I am completely amazed by. Knowing the intricacies of different types of wood is both an art and a science. To combine this knowledge with skilled craftsmanship and art makes this a remarkable form of art. Unlike painting I would think wood turning and/or carving leaves very little margin of error, There is no painting over a piece of wood that was accidentally cut too deep.
Bill Wallace, Janet Wallace and Lisa McCamy will all be showing their work at the Sunflower Studio in Wake Forest. The opening is this Friday (November 13th) and the show will run through December 5th.
