NorthWind Fine Arts is pleased to be featuring the work of one of its founding members, blacksmith, David J.D. Woodward. An opening reception will be held Friday, June 3rd from 5-7 pm.
David Woodward has been in the Adirondacks since 1957, with a family presence in America dating back to 1637. Woodward uses blacksmithing, an ancient and almost lost technique, to form a bridge between the past and the present. He begins with functionality but crafts his pieces into stunning works of art. Woodward is a member of the Adirondack Designer Blacksmiths, and will be participating in the international blacksmithing event YPRES 2016. He will have his own hand-forged poppies, the particular symbol of the event, available at his opening. The proceeds will be donated to the local VFW organization in remembrance of Memorial Day. Please join us for this special opening!
