Mid-Continent Library Display

Hello Independence Turners,
            We have been presented with the excellent opportunity to promote the Independence Woodturners club by showing off your work and artistic talent. From November 22nd until December 19th, we have the display case at the Lee’s Summit East Branch of the Mid-Continent Library (that’s the one east of the LS Hospital). So, please join us and dust off some of your favorite woodturning and help us show the  public some of the great things we can do with wood (or other material) on the lathe. 
           The display case is about 80 inches tall, 75 inches wide and 12 to 14 inches deep, with glass front and will be locked up to keep your artwork safe. There are four shelves about 11 inches deep to display our woodturnings. (see photo below.) The tallest we can display is about 14 inches. 

 To take part in this, simply send an email to Mel Bryan at this email address by clicking on this link; mrwudb@gmail.com  rather than replying to this message. Please indicate how many pieces you want to display so that we can make name cards for your display. Currently, the plan is to meet at the library at 10AM on Nov. 22 (Monday) to populate the case. If you cannot make it then, please contact me by phone (816-830-0107) or email (the same as above), (can be the signup email) and we’ll work out some way to collect your items. 
     These displays are always very popular with the public and library staff also. The variety of items can be very inspiring to the casual observer as well as the craftsman, so dig out your favorites and show them off.

     Thank you for participating and helping our club and taking our “Show & Tell” a step up and ahead.
