Contemporary Wood Opens April 23, 2022


We are excited to present our biennial invitational woodworking exhibit at 1+1=1 Gallery.

This year’s show, titled Contemporary Wood, features new work by three of the finest woodworkers in Montana: Tim J. Carney, Boyd Carson and Tom Robinson. Save the date, Saturday April 23, for opening day of this spectacular exhibit!

Boyd Carson and Tom Robinson are wood turners. Carson makes hollow form vessels as well as elegant sculptural wood pieces. Robinson also turns hollow form vessels and gorgeous finely crafted bowls. Carney is a furniture maker – his studio furniture is one of a kind and always impeccably designed to be comfortable as well as beautiful.


Open House on Opening Day

At our Saturday Open House – April 23 from 10 to 4 – we will host a casual conversation-question-answer time with the artists in the early afternoon. Tom, Boyd and Tim will bring some works in progress, maybe some of their tools and raw materials to give you an idea of what goes into a turned vessel or piece of fine furniture. Enjoy delicious appetizers, light desserts and beverages while you browse the woodworking show, meet the artists and maybe even find something to take home with you!
