Iridian Gallery: Wood Woman

Curated by Lora Beldon
February 9 – March 30, 2018


Opening reception and artist talk, Fri. Feb. 9, 2018, 7 - 9 PM (free)
Also on view, To Be Turned, a documentary on Barbara Dill by Patrick Gregory (in progress) in the Iridian Gallery, 1407 Sherwood Ave., Richmond, VA 23220

Barbara Dill is a force. It’s unusual enough for a woman in a traditionally male-dominated field to create art using slabs of wood as the medium, and Barbara came to it after a successful and colorful career in psychiatric nursing that took her to Europe and East Africa. She studied wood turning with Michael Hosaluk, Ray Key and David Ellsworth before bucking the restraints of symmetry by solving the mathematical mystery that perplexed wood turners until she did so: how to turn wood on a lathe asymmetrically, and most importantly, in a way that could be replicated consistently.

Wood Woman will feature a variety of large and small works that exemplify Barbara’s equation in a variety of woods, such as Holly and Red Cedar. Her art includes sculptures and functional pieces. The exhibit will also provide a glimpse into the artist’s studio, including one of her lathes and other working materials, and a process timeline created by curator Lora Beldon. There will be a brief artist’s talk at 8 PM during the opening reception. Barbara will additionally conduct a demonstration on Saturday, Feb. 17, 11 - Noon in the gallery.
