Mary Beth Wiseman
Mary Beth Wiseman attributes her artistic inspiration to the beauty
she finds in nature. She haunts the trails along Spring Creek near
Bellefonte, capturing her observations with her camera. Once home, she
translates the photos into portraits by hand carving her subjects into
rough wooden planks, using a variety of chisels, gouges, and planes.
The bas-relief carvings are then painted with acrylics. This technique
produces a stunning dimensional effect in the final piece. Mary Beth
hopes that her photos and carvings will foster a greater appreciation and awareness of the amazing creatures and environment that we all share.
Steve will display his Shaker style boxes made from locally salvaged
hardwoods. Over the past few years he has expanded his craftsmanship
into other functional items, such as utensils, live edge clocks and
small tables. A new item that will be featured in the atrium show is a
small necklace pendant. They are made utilizing elm salvaged from the
University Park campus, and have a "Tree of Life" image laser engraved
"My desire is to make very functional pieces, which are also a display
of the beautiful hardwoods found here in Central Pennsylvania."
