NORTHERN WYOMING NEWS: Worland woodturner wins Best in Show by Tracie Mitchell (07/04/2019)

Over Father's Day weekend, Worland resident and co-owner of Graceful Woodturnings, Mat King earned the prestigious award of Best in Show at the 65th annual Summer Fest Arts Faire in Logan, Utah, for his natural edge bowls, pens, wine stoppers and vases created by woodturning.

"I never expected this. As an artist you always hope that your stuff will be recognized and it just kind of validates all the hard work that I have been putting in and in the same token it is a motivational factor too. It kind of motivates me to want to go to the next level and keep seeing how much better I can get," King said.

King didn't win best of show for just one piece but for all his pieces presented. "My work as a whole won best of show. Along with winning this best of show I get a free booth next year, free juried fee and I will be the featured artist for next year's show which entails my name and a picture of the piece I decide to send to be featured on all their brochures, the website, the programs; I will be the cover artist," King explained.
