The Center For Art In Wood Presents “Vessel: Embodiment, Autonomy, & Ornament In Wood”
The Center for Art in Wood presents Vessel: Embodiment, Autonomy, and Ornament in Wood, a new exhibition examining the vessel as a source of inspiration for artists working in wood . The vessel has long been an essential tool for use as well as for understanding the universe and the afterlife, or as a metaphor for understanding autonomy, power, and agency over one’s body. Connecting to the Center for Art in Wood’s origins as an advocate for woodturning in art, this exhibition demonstrates the breadth of beauty, empowerment, subversion, and spiritual awareness inspired by the act of containment and the vessel form.
