Woody Woodturner

The Byrds once sang, "to every season turn, turn, turn." Artist Ron Kent thinks every wood should turn, turn, turn. Because, you see, Kent is a professional woodturner. In fact, he's a pioneer of turned wood. And not just any wood will do; Kent's medium of choice is Norfolk Island pine. He's mastered the art of tooling a hunk of log down to delicately crafted and fingernail-thin vases, bowls and other artifacts that catch light and reveal hidden patterns and colors. You can catch Kent's Archetypes exhibit, featuring more than 30 of his turnings, at Dallas' Gerald Peters Gallery, located at 2913 Fairmount St. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Call 214-969-9410 or visit gpgallerydallas.com or ronkent.com.
Feb. 23-24, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 25, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
