A new display at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva showcases the artistic work of ten local woodworkers. The display, organized by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library, opened in late January and will remain on view until March 31, 2012.

The exhibit features the work of Jackson County residents Jack Mincey, Robert Hopper, David Liberman, Bill Lyons, Bill Hyatt, Lebern Dills, Ron Yount, Brian Bartel, Don Marks, and Chris Behere.

Items on display downstairs include woodturned pieces such as plates, bowls, candle holders, kaleidoscopes, and ornaments. Upstairs, the display continues with examples of other types of woodworking, including intarsia (or inlaid) decorative pieces, toys, ornamental carving, and finely crafted boxes. The majority of the items are made from native hardwoods, and each piece brings out the natural character and beauty of the wood, whether it has been turned into a bowl or carved into a child's toy.
