Bring Metal for Commissioned Work

“Formation-Crucible” by Colette Odya-Smith.

Woodwalk Gallery presents its second exhibit showing with works by Colette Odya-Smith and Kelly 
Bresnahan. The exhibit opens with a reception July 12, 4:30 – 6:30 pm with an artist talks at 5:15 pm, food, beverages 
and plasma cutting demonstrations.

Odya-Smith is one of the nation’s most highly awarded pastel artists and teachers. She has won “first in show” in 
competitions in every region of the country often for her portrayal of moving water and woodland pools. She has taught 
throughout the country and abroad, including here at Peninsula School of Art.

Bresnahan has a much more local resume but his work is no less stunning to both accomplished wood-turners and 
aficionados. Mostly self-taught, the thinness of the walls of his vessels and his ability to navigate the intricacies of the voids and tangled grains of burls make his works highly sought after and complex. Bresnahan is currently the coordinator of the art program at NWTC and teaches occasional master classes.

Collin and Meghan Donnelly, whose work can be seen at the Milwaukee Art Museum, will present plasma metal-cutting demonstrations throughout the reception. Attendees are invited to bring metal objects to commission the Donnellys to design a figure to be cut, and then returned through Woodwalk or shipped.

Guitar virtuoso George Sawyn will provide the entertainment for the reception. Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 County Road G, five miles south of Egg Harbor, off Highway 42. The exhibit will be shown daily 10 am – 5 pm through August 20. For more information visit
