Update: Wednesday, May 23rd @ 7 p.m. Sculptors Donna Dodson & Andy Moerlein are presenting a fascinating artist's talk:

Donna Dodson has been carving images out of wood since 1996. Her sculptures explore feminine beauty and evoke humor and playfulness but also grace, power and emotional strength. Her unique vision responds to the relation of animals to the human spirit that have existed since ancient times.

'My work today seeks out eccentric branches, expressive trees, vivid grain, and uses the woven flow of growth and experience to trace my personal story. My work has many aspects - but wood, trees and the patterns they mark upon the landscape is a foundation of structure I depend on.' Andy Moerlein
