The Brookfield Craft Center is hosting an exhibition of work by the Nutmeg Woodturners League. The exhibition will kick off with an opening reception on Saturday April 9 in the Lynn Tendler Bignel gallery from 5-8 p.m. The reception is open to all.
The Nutmeg Woodturners League, established in 1989, is affiliated with the American Association of Woodturners and is dedicated to promoting woodturning as a craft and an art form.
“We are proud to host this exhibition” stated Howard Lasser, the Craft Center’s executive director. “The Nutmeg Woodturners and the Brookfield Craft Center have a long history of collaboration. The Nutmegers were instrumental in our ability to reopen our woodturning studio last fall. This is an opportunity for us to share and show the community some of these artists’ beautiful, creative and artistic work.”
The show will run through Saturday, April 30. The gallery is open Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. as well as by appointment made by phone via (203) 775-4526.
The Brookfield Craft Center’s woodturning studio reopened in the fall of 2015 with new equipment and new classes. Beginning woodworkers to experienced craftspeople can explore box making to bowls, spindles to finials, along with pen turning and more, with distinguished faculty and visiting artists. The Nutmeg Woodturners League holds meetings in the studio on the second Monday of the month, semi-monthly (i.e. January, March, May, July and November). Further information is available through the center's website.
