About Beth Ireland: Beth Ireland is a Woodturner/Sculptor who draws upon a lifetime of professional, traditional Woodturning/Woodworking skills to explore sculpture, architecture and relational aesthetics. Her belief in the power of the object drives her work, exploring the idea of memory locked in objects, and the creation of object as a visible symbol of memory. Working alone and collaboratively she delves into the anthropological meaning of making in our modern lives.

About Ed Karch: “My training is in forestry and economics. My career was mostly spent in 23 African countries promoting sustainable development, but I have always looked for a medium of expression for artistic impulses. Sculpting, carving, tool making, flint knapping, blacksmithing, stained glass, bookbinding, and woodworking have all been satisfying but when I tried a lathe I found my medium of expression. I spent the early part of my career planting hundreds of thousands of trees. I now salvage wood from Virginia’s multitude of hardwood species to expose the beauty of these woods through turning of various objects of both practical and artistic value. “
