LUDLOW, Vt. – Local artist Rich Detrano opens new woodturning gallery of his work. During the Vermont Crafts Council Open Studio Tour, May 27 -28, is a great time to stop by as he will be demonstrating his craft all weekend. The wood he uses in his work is locally sourced. The inspiration for his work comes from what nature provides to a particular species of wood. He attempts to highlight the natural features of the wood including its imperfections and peculiarities. It is often the grain pattern and bark inclusions that are the true beauty of his work. His intention is to create a form that will allow nature’s beauty to be seen and enjoyed.
The studio and gallery are located at 488 Andover Rd., and will be open from 10 a.m. – 5p.m. and you can reach him at 802-228-8894. From 103 in Ludlow take 100 S for 3.2 miles at Andover Rd, bear left and his studio is 1 mile down from there.
