DESCRIPTION

This exhibition showcases the premier wood art collection of Minneapolitans David and Ruth Waterbury, which is considered one of the best in the country.

The exhibition includes approximately 80 pieces of wood art, representing the changing approaches to the medium during the past twenty-five years, from simple turned vessels to sculpted and constructed works. The Waterbury collection includes works by many prominent artists in the field, including William Hunter, Ron Kent, Michelle Holzapfel, Robyn Horn, Robert Stocksdale, Michael Mode, Alan Stirt, Hayley Smith, and Todd Hoyer.
