About the Exhibition: William Stoney Lamar (1951 – ) has contributed exceptional skill and vision to the world of wood turning for over 25 years. Stoney Lamar’s sculpture is created primarily through a unique approach to multi-axial lathe work, giving his pieces a distinct sense of line and movement unlike other works of turned wood. Often letting the shape, color and modeling of the wood determine a piece’s finished appearance, Lamar also employs paint and metal in his forms. The artist continues to create, and his work can be found in both private and public collections around the country.
