Artists Rachel S. Lamb and C. Peter Ordway will exhibit their painted relief wood carvings at the Saranac Lake Free Library from October 15 to November 18, 2012 in a show titled “Carvings, Contemporary and Abstract.”
Rachel produces dramatically stained and painted carved forms in wood; her stylistic renditions of nature show seasonal flair with images of dreamy, ethereal, and fantasy scenes. One of her wood carvings was featured on the cover of the Arts Directory for The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks this year. She displays her works at NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery in Saranac Lake, NY.
Peter carves scenes of nature in wood, using a realistic style in the folk art tradition. He finishes his works with colorful paint and stains, allowing the carved wood to be the prominent feature of each piece. This is the premier exhibit of his most recent artistic creations. He will also display some of his photographic art at this show.
Both artists find satisfaction in the slow carving process. Working with their hands using steel chisels and knives, applying finishes, turning raw wood into creative artistic reliefs, they allow the world around them to momentarily fade away as they produce one of a kind pieces.
A “Meet the Artist” opening reception will be held Friday, October 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Cantwell Room in the Saranac Lake Library on Main Street in Saranac Lake. Be sure to take this opportunity to see the most recent additions to the long tradition of Adirondack relief carving.
