Lonny VanBoovenLonny VanBooven: Conceptions

Conceptions, a collection of photography from Lonny VanBooven, will be exhibited in the Louise Gallery at Mulberry Art Studios throughout the month of September 2013. The show opens with a First Friday Reception from 5pm until 9pm on September 6th. The exhibit will also be available during regular gallery hours, weekdays from 10am until 4pm. 

VanBooven is a professional photography from Manheim, PA, who has exhibited his work at Mulberry Art Studios in the past. He is excited to return to the gallery for a show in the center’s Louise Gallery just off the main lobby. The exhibit will feature various works: landscape, trees, places of interest, wildlife and artistic pieces. VanBooven has been a photographer since the early 90’s and is constantly intrigued by the emotional responses photographs are able to produce. 

 “As I continue on my journey through life, I will keep my eyes wide open to all that is around me, ready to capture those “WOW” moments,” he remarks.

Kevin BedgoodExplorations: The Lathe Sculpted Art of Kevin Bedgood

Explorations, a new collection of sculpted wood from local artist Kevin Bedgood, will be exhibited in the North Gallery at Mulberry Art Studios throughout the month of September.  The exhibit opens with a First Friday Reception on September 6th from 5pm until 9pm.  Mulberry Art Studios holds regular gallery hours on weekdays from 10am until 4pm and is located in beautiful downtown Lancaster at 19-21 North Mulberry Street.

The pieces in Explorations were created with wood and sculpted by lathe, inspired by man’s exploration of the universe around him.  With inventive pieces like “Liftoff”, “Gravity”, “Aurora”, “Slipstream” and the ongoing “Corona” series, Kevin’s groundbreaking ideas continue to push the boundaries of woodworking and woodturning.

Bedgood had early exposure to woodworking.  As a child he would sweep up in his father’s hobby furniture making shop.  However, it really wasn’t until after spending time in the US Marine Corps that he began building some furniture of his own.  In the last 25 years, he has moved from designing and building furniture to more artistic woodturning and sculpting. 

“My greatest explorations lately have been in pushing some boundaries of what is normally created on a wood lathe” says Bedgood. “ Most of my wall hangings are created by turning multiple pieces of wood, generally in unusual shapes like squares or rectangles, then cutting them apart and reassembling the pieces in such a way as to integrate the disparity of design into a coherent piece that creates a sense of movement or evokes an emotional response or memory.”
