Celebrations of Creativity and Craftsmanship

Dick Gerard, a woodturner since 1979, presents his art. He has said,  “The majority of my designs are simple forms that seek to compliment and accentuate Nature's inherent beauty through objects that have a strong tactile and aesthetic appeal.  I have begun to experiment with added elements (carving, gold wire, semi-precious stones, color, bleaching and texturing, etc.), and airbrushing.”

He continued, “This year I have concentrated about 90% of my efforts investigating the making of wooden spheres using different methods, and then decorating those spheres to create new and unique art from turned wooden spheres.” 

For many years, Dick participated in AAW shows throughout the Midwest and in 2004 received the AAW Honorary Lifetime Award.
