In conjunction with its current exhibit and sale, Natural Materials: Fallen Trees, Local Artisans, the Wildling Museum of Art & Nature will host a panel featuring the artisans from the exhibit at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, on the closing weekend of the exhibit.

The panel will include Ken Frye, Victor Di Novi and Robin Corell, moderated by the exhibit organizer, Dave Seymour. The artists will give an inside look into how they created their unique works, the techniques they use, and they will answer questions.

In addition to sharing their knowledge of woodworking, the artisans will discuss the wood they choose and why.

Tickets are $5 for Wildling Museum members, $10 for non-members.

From bowls and urns made on a lathe to fine handcrafted furniture, the woodworking exhibit, which closes Feb. 13, has examples of what can be created from local and exotic wood.

There is an 1853 rosewood piano that has been repurposed with extreme creativity by Frye into a cabinet which is intermingled with bowls made from a tree that once stood on Second Street in Solvang. Explore the exhibit and learn about woodworking methods and interesting facts about wood.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
