Event Details

The Lamorinda Arts Council presents Grant Glossop’s woodturnings, which arise from found wood and metal on their journey to his studio. View his work at the Counci’s onine galery from July 10 through Sep. 9. At his July 10 opening reception where light refreshments were served, he demonstrated a variety of woodworking treatments including patination options at different stages of design completion. See https://lamorindaarts.org/current-exhibits-wilder/ for details.

Glossop hails from Yorkshire in the U.K. and now lives in Novato. He originally trained as a jeweler in the U.K. where he developed his love of working with metals. After finishing art school he became interested in creating larger pieces. This led him to incorporate wood into his designs.

For many years Glossop designed and created work for himself but during the pandemic that changed. Glossop launched a website to expand his reach. “Creating during quarantine helped me find some kind of balance during a challenging time,” he said.

His goal is to make something that someone else sees as beautiful. His 12” x 4” x 4” “Loxley Floating Box” made of treated wood and paint seems to hover above its resting place, catching the eye and imagination. Learn more about Glossop’s work at www.grantglossop.com.

The Wilder Art and Garden Center is located at 20 Orinda Fields Way, Orinda. The exhibit runs July 10 through Aug. 6 and is in-person on the reception date but virtual the rest of the month because the building is not open due to COVID-19 restrictions. Viewings by appointment with Curator Aniston Breslin can be arranged by request at anistonbreslin@berkeley.edu. Questions? Call the Lamorinda Arts Council at 925.359.9940.

Choi said, “I found it fascinating that in the Buddhist tradition, with open interpretation, there are 108 earthly feelings in life. Thus, going forward, I plan to continue to create 108 pieces of woodcut relief to signify those expressions of feelings in life.
