The Dayton Memorial Library will be hosting an exhibit of fine artistic woodturning during the month of October. Woodturnings created by Paul Stafford will illustrate how turned wood bowls and vessels have transcended function and are indeed decorative pieces of art. His work has gone beyond the aesthetic of natural beauty and line and has developed into his highly personal bodies of work. They continually beg the question – “How did he do that?”
Paul is known to be part of the local art gallery shows and has received many awards including a NICHE award. His signature zippered vessels (and others) have been admired and sold not only locally but also nationally and internationally. Several art magazines such as SouthwestArt and NICHE have covered his work. You may have seen it at the Cherry Creek Art Festival or Loveland Invitational Sculpture show.
The woodturnings will be on display for the month of October in the Doyle Hartman Gallery, 2nd Floor, Dayton Memorial Library.
