The Center for Art in Wood is proud to present the Young Artist Speaker Series. Each semester a young artist is asked to share their work and speak about the transition from academia to becoming an independent artist. The fifth installment in the series will feature artist Danielle Rose Byrd taking place virtually on Thursday, May 12, 2022, from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. Byrd will discuss her road to woodworking, extensive travels, and her recent publication The Handcarved Bowl.

Danielle Rose Byrd: Danielle is a self-taught woodcarver and sculptor living and working in Bar Harbor, Maine. At College of the Atlantic she explored music and sound sculpture, and while building a handmade fiddle-ish instrument constructed from burn pile wood found on campus, began carving scraps into spoons.

She has written for various magazines and journals, and from 2014-17 was a member of Lie-Nielsen Toolworks, traveling the country teaching hand tool woodworking fundamentals. In 2018 she was awarded the Belvedere Handcraft Fellowship by the Maine Arts Commission. Her first book, The Handcarved Bowl, was published in 2021.

This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
