This exhibition highlights the work of Ron Isaacs, a master craftsman whose woodwork resembles clothing, leaves, branches, and flowers- however, it all starts with birch plywood. Trompe L’oeil is a term meaning, “a trick of the eye”, and what is in the gallery will certainly give reason for a second look.
Also included are the found-object construction work of Bryan Sieling and Barbara Chavous, the painted pyrography of Queen Brooks, folk art of Noah Kinney, Roy Butcher, Ronald Cooper, and Lee Garrett.
Some works are additive, some subtractive. All created with vision, insight, and illustrate the vast vocabulary of wood.
