Archway Gallery presents Wood You Believe It, an exhibition featuring works in wood by member artist Paula Haymond. Haymond’s creative vision takes form in the trees she cuts down, turns on the lathe, hand carves, delicately burns, textures, pierces with lace patterns and airbrushes with acrylics. She creates works which are rich with stories, imagination and complex imagery. Her large vases often suggest other materials are being used such as metal and ceramics, while her small intimate carvings are suggestive of ancient ocean forms. Haymond seeks to engage the viewer with her pieces by pulling them closer to each piece to investigate the images and movements across each form. It is there that viewers often encounter surprises that delight and amuse for years to come.
The artist will be on hand to visit with guests during the exhibition opening reception on Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 5 - 8 pm at the gallery and will talk about her work at 6:30 pm.
