Betty Scarpino - Quirky Cargo

The displayed work is as diverse as the women’s professional backgrounds: lawyers, nurses, teachers, biologists, agriculturists, and industrial arts teachers.  They became enamored with wood and changed their original careers.  This exciting show features sculptures, furniture, multi-axes turnings, bent and carved wood, turned jewelry, pyrography and more; all  made from exotic as well as domestic woods.  Color, texture and patterns will delight the viewer.  Prints and repurposed book art derived from wood will demonstrate the ever-expanding repertoire of the artists’ interests and skills.
