Sept. 11 Celebrations of Creativity and Craftsmanship, noon, free admission. Enjoy Tim Kennedy’s presentation about his wood art. Tim is a woodturner who lives and works in Fishers, Indiana. He is best known for using a lathe to achieve graceful curving lines. With rustic and classic elements incorporated into simplistic, contemporary design, his work ranges from small spinning tops to large wall hangings. Every piece focuses on the natural beauty of wood, which is often enhanced through weathering, burning, or sandblasting. Kennedy said he picked up his interest in woodturning from his father, who taught industrial arts and had a woodshop of his own. He describes himself as “a generalist” in wood turning and strives to incorporate a wide range of techniques in his work. As a member of the American Association of Woodturners, and an Indiana Artisan, Tim’s work is frequently shown at local Art Fairs.
