DESCRIPTION

This exhibition is the first comprehensive look at Michael Peterson's poetic wood sculpture, much of which was inspired by the craggy skies and misty rains of the Pacific Northwest. Following the unique trajectory of this wood sculptor over the past 20 years, the exhibition traces the evolution from the artist's early works heavily dictated by the lathe to his current, revolutionary sculptures not lathe-formed. More than 30 sculptures will be on view. After the Arkansas Arts Center Michael Peterson: Evolution / Revolution will travel to the Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wis., and will be on view August 6 - November 13, 2011.
