Gallery 30 will feature the work of North Carolina carver, Chris Boone. With more than 30 years of craftsmanship, Chris has turned the decoy into an elegant piece of art.
Combining crafts with his personal joy of hunting and fishing, Chris Boone began carving decoys at the age of twelve. His carvings are primitive styled wooden sculpture from old world, modern and life reference. He personally chooses each section of tree before beginning each sculpture. Shape and form are defined from the unique characteristics of every piece of wood. Chris further hones the natural essences by purposefully leaving lichen bark and moss attached making each one an original. A fine hand finish is applied to each bird to bring out subtle grain patterns and enhancing the colors of the wood while keeping an antiqued style. Gallery 30 has been representing Chris Boone for over a decade.
Come view the work of Chris Boone, explore local art, and enjoy a wine and cheese reception at Gallery 30 from 5:30-8:30 on Friday, October 5. For more information visit www.gallery30.com or call 717-334-0335.
