6:30 pm Artist Talk

Bettendorf artist Steve Sinner presents “An Improbable Journey,” the story of how he set out to gain recognition in the woodturning world. Sinner has dedicated himself to artistic woodturning for two decades, though his passion for and experimentation with woodturning began long before then. In his work, he develops intricate surface decoration using silver leaf, acrylics and ink on deep hollow vessels turned primarily of maple, walnut or cherry. His works are found in museums, galleries and collections from New York to California, including the Figge Art Museum.
