Artist of the Month – August 2007 Alan Hollar Wood Artist from Newland, NC
Alan Hollar lives and works in the mountains of North Carolina, a land that provides a never-ending source of material and inspiration for his work. Using primarily salvaged timbers from a number of sources, such as road building, construction, and storm damage, he is engaged in a constant exploration of the visual possibilities of form, color and texture. By combining lathe turning and carving, the potential of the vessel form is expanded, and the beauty and drama of the wood is lifted up to the eye.
The exhibit will open on August 3rd and run till August 31st. The exhibit is on display in the Piedmont Craftsmen Gallery at 601 N. Trade Street, W-S, NC
