Wood & Wine exhibit opening at Grovewood Gallery, Aug. 7

Grovewood Gallery in Asheville celebrates newest addition to gallery: an exhibition space dedicated solely to fine wood art. Thursday, August 7 (12 – 6pm)

Asheville, NC. – Join Grovewood Gallery as they raise a glass to celebrate the newest addition to their gallery: an exhibition space dedicated solely to fine wood art. Wood & Wine will take place Thursday, August 7 from 12 – 6pm and feature contemporary sculptural and functional wood art by some of the most highly respected national and international artists in the field. Grovewood welcomes artists, collectors and casual shoppers alike to take part in this festive celebration.

Grovewood’s new exhibition space currently features more than 50 pieces ranging from unadorned functional forms to complex sculptural work. This rotating collection will feature works by different artists throughout the year. All of the items will be available for purchase.

Highlights to Grovewood’s collection include The Dervish by French artist Alain Mailland (who specializes in green wood hollowing techniques and produces unique sculptures known by their thinness) and Black/White Pair by John Jordan (whose turned and carved vessels are featured in the permanent collections of more than 25 museums, including the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum). Grovewood also has new works on display by Texas-born artist Clay Foster, who was honored with the Merit Award at the American Association of Woodturners 28th Annual International Symposium in Phoenix, AZ in June. The biennial Merit Award goes to individuals who have shown exceptional development in their careers as artists and whose artworks have directly influenced or had a significant impact on other artists within the field of woodturning as a whole.

Grovewood encourages you to come to Wood & Wine and celebrate wood art, be inspired, and raise a glass. Collectors and curious patrons can also view available works online at grovewood.com/wood.
