‘Space In Time’ Preserves Time and Beauty of Wood

Money may not grow on trees, but Jonathan Levi Rutherford’s Space in Time exhibition proves that art most certainly does.

The collection – at the Carrollton Center for the Arts through April 1 – features beautiful and functional artworks transformed from Rutherford’s chosen medium: wood.      

“The process of woodworking from living tree to finished sculpture means discovering hidden treasure,” Rutherford said. “Every log and piece of lumber was once alive. Its grain is a map of growth and experiences, struggles to survive and journey through time. I seek to maximize the beauty of that journey through new forms. It is my joy to take my space in time to preserve and honor the subtle beauty of another space in time, that of the original tree.”

A public reception will be held February 29, 5 – 7 pm at the center to celebrate the exhibition. 

“I believe visitors will love how the artist’s craftsmanship allows the natural elements and beauty of the wood to shine through in the work,” said Visual Arts Coordinator Marcella Kuykendall. “The scale and variety of pieces from small functional vessels to large sculptures is exciting to see in the same space.”

The show is sponsored by Patrick and Hallie Henrickson.
