The colors and ambience of the woodlands are the inspiration for A Walk in the Woods, an exhibit by 14 artists at the Carroll Arts Center's Tevis Gallery from Thursday through Nov. 23.
The show will feature turned wood, carvings, metal sculpture and woodland landscape paintings.
An opening reception will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The show will feature painters Pat Brodowski of Hampstead and Jerry DeWitt from Westminster, who create woodland imagery in acrylic and watercolor, respectively. DeWitt has used wood from the historic Wye Oak in one of his paintings.
Michael Bare and Joanne Hicks, a couple from Monkton, will display their vistas and woodland scenes in oil. Painter Joan Danziger of Washington will show recent paintings of the Rocky Mountains as well as mixed-media works.
Uniontown artist and blacksmith Nick Vincent will share woodland-inspired forms such as dogwood blossoms forged from metal. Dayla Luttwak creates subterranean floral compositions crafted from hammered copper.
Charlotte Dutton of Frederick creates sculptural forms from the natural shapes of driftwood. Rush Moody Jr. from the Eastern Shore will exhibit his realistic carved butterflies.
Brent Crothers of Bel Air and Ed Hardy of Baltimore create conceptual sculptural works. Fred Bane of Westminster follows the natural patterns of wood to turn the pieces on a lathe. He also has used pieces from the Wye Oak in his creations.
Also featured will be mixed-media works by Morten Fadum of Onancock, Va., and Elzbieta Sikorska from Silver Spring, who creates mixed-media works on paper detailing the forest floor.
The Carroll Arts Center is at 91 W. Main St., Westminster.
