Natural Materials: Fallen Trees, Local Artisans

Oct 29, 2016 - Feb 13, 2017

The Santa Ynez Valley Woodworking Guild hosted an exhibition and sale of their handcrafted art pieces, furniture and more, made with locally sourced wood (in all or part).  The Santa Ynez Valley Woodworking Guild was formed in 1994 and has expanded to include woodworkers from Atascadero, Nipomo, San Luis and Los Osos.

From bowls and urns made on a lathe to fine handcrafted furniture, this exhibition has amazing examples of what can be created from local and exotic wood. View a breathtaking 1853 rosewood piano has been repurposed with extreme creativity by Ken Frye into a breathtaking cabinet intermingled with bowls made from a tree that once stood on 2nd Street in Solvang. Explore the exhibit and learn about woodworking methods and interesting facts about wood.

This show includes a tribute to Santa Ynez Valley wood artist Bud Tullis, who has been an integral part of the group and has an impressive resume of shows and galleries.  Bud was commissioned to create four of the benches at the Wildling Museum years ago and they are still used and admired by our visitors today.
