Enhanced by Nature is open to the public at Artists on Elgin for the month of June. Artists on Elgin welcomes the public to an opening reception featuring award winning wood artisan, David Solomon and his exhibition titled, ‘Enhanced by Nature’ on Saturday June 2, from 1pm-4pm.
David’s primary focus is creating decorative wood boxes from exotic hardwoods, often combined with nature enhanced pieces of maple. He uses spalted maple, pieces obtained from his Manitoulin Island cottage property, as the focal point in many of his works. David also creates one-of-a-kind wall art, revealing the beauty hidden within select pieces of crotch maple.
David will always have a passion for wood. He loves the way it looks, feels, and smells and he hopes that his passion translates into creations that surprise and delight the senses of the viewers. David also hopes that it facilitates in them a deeper appreciate for the natural beauty of wood, especially the hidden treasures which are often undiscovered.
His work is carried by galleries in several Ontario locations including Sudbury, Toronto, Burlington, Kingston, Ottawa, & Tobermory, as well as galleries in Michigan and Indiana.
Artists on Elgin encourages and welcomes the public to an opening reception that will surely captivate the natural and delicate beauty of wood through a variety of display pieces, as well as hanging wood art. The exhibit itself will run from June 1-30.
