Artist Statement: I am interested in the transformation and contrasts discovered through
woodturning. The process of converting a featureless block of wood into a
graceful, symmetrical form is always fascinating and full of surprises.
While working at the lathe, all the details and color of the object are
integrated into a spinning blur that reveals only its outline. At rest,
the same object can disclose complex details and dramatic coloring while
possessing an entirely different sense of motion.

About the Artist:
Educated in engineering, Dewey Garrett took up the lathe in order to develop general woodworking skills for cabinetry and furniture. He found the process so stimulating and challenging that woodturning became a dedicated pursuit. Garrett's work is a continuing exploration of the structure of forms constrained by the symmetry and simplicity imparted by the mechanics of a lathe. His work is in numerous private and public collections, including Carnegie Museum of Art; Museum of Arts and Design, New York; The Detroit Institute of Arts; Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach, California
Mobile Museum of Art, Alabama; The White House, Washington, DC;
American Association of Woodturners Permanent Collection, St. Paul, Minnesota
