Mark Lindquist 40-Year Retrospective Opens Friday

I am hoping to be able to go to the Opening of this show on Friday but it may be tricky as all my art-loving friends are out of town this weekend. The Gadsden Arts Center is in Quincy, which is about a half hour drive west of Tallahassee. 

Friday, September 10 / Opening Reception 6–9pm / Gallery Talk 6:30pm
Exhibition continues through October 23

The Gadsden Arts Center is honored to host Mark Lindquist, a forty-year retrospective exhibition of the work of this legendary woodturner and wood sculptor. Recipient of the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Woodturners and a Fellow of the American Craft Council, Lindquist’s tireless exploration of the expressive possibilities of this medium has helped to define its past, present, and future in the fine art world. In 1995, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum honored Lindquist by hosting his 25-year retrospective exhibition. His work has been acquired by major museums in the United States and Europe including the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington, DC), High Museum of Art (Atlanta, GA), and Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York). The exhibition will present the broadest range of Lindquist’s work ever seen in one venue, a major cultural event for our region.
