In July and August the Winthrop Gallery will feature new artworks by photographer Dennis Kirkland, pine needle basket weaver Lauralee Northcott and wood furniture builder Cliff Schwab. Dennis Kirkland will present photographs taken on a recent trip to Iceland. “Iceland is a photographers paradise with stunning scenery of seascapes, lava fields, glaciers, glacial lagoons, waterfalls, and rivers that flow to the ocean,” says Dennis.
Multi-talented artist Lauralee Northcott will showcase her latest pine needle baskets. “I am equally taken by the variety and beauty of stones, gems, and beads,” says Lauralee. “I love to work with colors, textures, and various threads to create as beautiful a basket as I can possibly create.”
Cliff Schwab is continuing his line of reclaimed pine furniture which features dovetail joinery and Oregon walnut accents. The pine was reclaimed from an Idaho granary and provides rich, deep tones. Each piece of furniture is unique in character, aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.
