Our exhibit for the month of July is called "It's Not (Really) Rocket Science," featuring works in wood by wood artist Johnna Klukas. She has been nominated for 5 Chesley Awards, given annually by the Association of Science Fiction Artists, and has won two. She has designed and built two bases for the Hugo Award, given each year for excellence in Science Fiction. She is a member of the Salem Arts Association, the American Association of Wood Turners and Southern Maine Wood Turners. Using a lathe as her primary tool, Johnna carves out rocket ships, alien landscapes and star cruisers in a variety of exotic and elegent woods. She never uses wood stains, allowing the wood's natural beauty and color to accent the pieces. Johnna's work is breathtaking!
Also displaying at the Art Corner is Johnna's husband, James Belfiore. Jim's work is digital imaging and his display is called "Orbital Crossings." His images are whimsical and haunting, of alien landscapes and space flight.
Friday, July 17, 6-9pm you can meet Johnna and Jim at the Art Corner for a reception in their honor.
THANKS and hope to see you there!
