Genuine Southwest Art & Gifts is proud to feature Michael Alguire, wood turner extraordinaire, and his new series of work at a one-night-only show. His new series involves hand carving the 2nd layer of wood down to reveal 3d surface designs. The finished pieces are unique and beautiful.
Michael, a well-respected and multi award winning wood turner was born and raised in Albuquerque. He started turning wood in 2013 and his passion, abilities and creativity have grown from making pens and wooden ornaments to beautiful one-of-a-kind works of art. Michaels says, “my creativity comes from within when I see a piece of wood in its raw state and imagine the possibilities.” He is a machinist at the Very Large Array, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Southern NM.
Join us as we celebrate Michael Alguire and his work. Light refreshments will be served.
