A hanging wall shelf, created by George School woodworking and design teacher, Carter Sio ’76, is part of the Works in Wood show hosted by New Hope Arts Center. This annual juried exhibition celebrates the woodworking tradition of Bucks County. This year, the show was juried by Mark Sfirri, noted woodworker, curator, and professor emeritus at Bucks County Community College and John McDevitt, sculptor and designer, of Solebury, Pennsylvania.
“Carter, whose works have long been admired and collected in this region, has a ‘Wall Hung Shelf’ on exhibit,” reported Janet Purcell for The Times of Trenton. “Built in ebonized white oak and curly maple, the shelf, following the New Hope furniture tradition, has a raw edge with a drawer hanging beneath.”
“The more than 65 works (on display), in a wide range of styles and techniques, present an exciting view of the wood medium in the hands of 40 contemporary artists,” said New Hope Arts Executive Director Carol Cruikshanks. “Jurors selected this year’s exhibition from more than 400 individual works submitted.”
The show runs through Sunday, January 7, 2018. The hours are noon to 5:00 p.m., Friday through Sunday.
