Artistry of Portneuf Valley Woodturners Assoc. on Display at Marshall Public Library

The hidden beauty in a block of wood will be on display at the Marshall Public Library. 

The handiworks of the Portneuf Valley Woodturners Association are being exhibited at the library through August 31. Woodturners use lathes and hand-held tools to produce their finished pieces. Some of the items that can be produced through woodturning techniques include musical instruments, spindles, balusters, knobs, and more.  

"Woodturning as an art form is relatively young," said Dick Anderson, President of the Portneuf Valley Woodturners Association. “In the past, woodturning was used to produce mostly functional items such as pieces for architectural use and for bowls, containers and other kitchenware. Now, you are seeing a greater movement toward art with many specialty woods used to create sculptural and artistic pieces that are displayed and sold through art galleries."

If you have an idea for a future display at the Marshall Public Library, contact Jen Hawkins, Library Specialist, at 208-232-1263 ext. 106 or
