Wood artist Jim Short will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Wednesday, October, 30, 2019 from 10:00 to 5:00 with some of his wood turning tools. Jim rescues homeless wood. His turnings often come from local trees headed for the landfill or a stove. He enjoys the wood's connection to Whidbey Island’s climate and community. A signature of his work is highlighting "imperfections." Forms are developed on the lathe as the wood allows. Most pieces are turned green, allowed to dry and then turned again, sanded and finished. Other green pieces are turned to a finished form and left to find their own shape and texture.
Penn Cove Gallery is proud to be celebrating its 25th anniversary this year on November 2, 2019, 10:00 to 5:00.
