On Exhibit from Wednesday, February 2nd thru Saturday, February 26th.

As a leathersmith, the artist says:

"Curiosity led to inspiration, apprenticeship led to accomplishment, passion led to craftsmanship. I became curious in 1966. I began my apprenticeship in 1968. The passion continues..."

Of his woodwork with the Live Edge workshop, the artist says:

"My woodworking endeavors are a product of the pandemic--it has allowed me the time to develop this new skill and explore creating with a different material."
