September 25, 2019 (Moscow, Idaho) -- Third Street Gallery's exhibition Wood & Word features 15 woodworkers and 15 poets and will be on display October 7-November 29, 2019.
Wood & Word is a portrait of two communities entwined, as poets and woodworkers embark on collaborative explorations of words and wood. Both media have utilitarian purposes, but this exhibition invites the viewer to step over the boundary of practical function, to experience the world by way of feeling.
Woodworkers use their tools and sensibilities to reveal a beauty that surpasses simple utility. Whatever object they may construct, the wood artist seeks the forest's poetry of soil, sun, and water.
Poets, likewise, use the magnetic resonance of words to pull back the curtain on a world beyond language. In this exhibition, they sing the song of the trees.
Third Street Gallery is located on the second and third floors of Moscow City Hall at 206 East Third Street in Moscow, ID. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
