Artist in Residence to host reception featuring woodworker, jeweler and photographer
Plus hand painted items in honor of Enosburg’s annual Dairy Day
The Artist In Residence Gallery on Main Street in Enosburg Falls will feature a three artist reception featuring AIR members Toby Fulwiler, Deb Kiel and Wayne Tarr on Sunday, June 1st at 1 pm. The gallery will also feature special hand painted items - such as sap buckets, pots and berry baskets - in honor of Enosburg’s annual Dairy Day. Refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
Fulwiler, a former board president of the AIR gallery, is a maker of wooden bowls of all sizes plus garlic knives and servers. “I’ve been woodturning exactly as long as AIR has been in existence, eight years, and I’ve been working with wood since my dad taught me to carve Indian head rings to hold my Cub Scout neckerchief in place sixty some years ago,” Fulwiler said. “My latest creativity, however, seems to be sideways, as instead of turning new bowls or inventing new kitchen implements, I’m now moving my entire woodshop from the house to a renovated horse barn half a mile away, thinking the environment in which one works is part of the pleasure and shape of that work. Hold on—fingers crossed--more good work soon ahead!»
Jeweler and paper artist Kiel noted, “I’m inspired by shape, color, texture, groups of things, and words. I am busy creating dapped flower forms in brass, copper, and silver right now as well as printing my own notecards to add to the gallery.”
Tarr, a photographer since 1976, specializes in black and white photography, portraiture and school and organizational/club/team photography.
The seven-year-old AIR gallery is a member owned and operated cooperative. It is open Wednesday through Sunday. For more information call or email the gallery at 933-6403 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.artistinresidencecoop.com.
