Dream a Little Dream

There will be a reception for the John Butler and the South Coast Woodturner's Club on Sunday, January 15th from 2 – 4 pm at the Bandon Library Art Gallery, in the Sprague Room.
Oil painter John Butler's stunning dreamscapes explore the unconscious, the world of dreams and the inner life. Using familiar elements in unfamiliar ways, his complex images capture the kaleidoscopic nature of time, perception, and memory, the many levels of awareness available to us during even the most mundane activities. His canvases shimmer with color and light, opening new vistas of imagination.
Also during January and February, the cases are filled with the finely carved bowls, platters, vases, and magic wands made by the South Coast Woodturner's Club. Its members are artisans who share a love of wood turning.
