Join us for a special guided tour of current works on view in A Sense of Balance: The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar, led by Guest Curator Andrew Glasgow and artist Stoney Lamar. Glasgow and Lamar will share insights about the exhibition and how it came to be, and talk about individual pieces in the show.

A Sense of Balance: The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar presents work from 1987 to the present. Uninspired by traditional turned wood vessel forms Stoney Lamar embarked on a personal exploration of the lathe and other tools of turners and woodworkers. This spirit of experimentation has firmly placed his work in the avant-garde of the wood turning world. Not only was he one of the first to use multi-axial turning, but eventually he added steel, color and distressed surface treatments.

Stoney Lamar's respect for wood is central to his creative vision and comes from his long association with this natural material. This exhibition is a testament to artistic endeavor, showing how beautifully the essence of wood can be honored and how masterfully technique, color and surface can blend in works that explore balance and imbalance, order and symmetry, energy, rhythm and harmony.
