Golden Triangle Woodturners, a group of more than 70 artisans who use ancient techniques of manipulating wood through the use of a lathe, are producing the group show, Turning Logs Into Art, on exhibition in the Meadows Gallery through August 10. Displaying a large variety of sculptural pieces — some functional, others ornate — the exhibition features techniques from mineral inlay and pyrography to metal leaf inlay and airbrushing. GDAC galleries are open Tuesdays through Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. at 400 East Hickory St. in Denton. Call 940-382-2787 or visit dentonarts.com for more details.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 20. Continues through Aug. 10, 2012
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
