Featured in the John Streetman Alcove from September 9 – December 30 is the furniture and sculpture of Wyatt Daglá Severs. A native of rural southern Illinois, where he played in the woods and creek beds as a child and learned to appreciate nature, Severs is an accomplished woodworker and artist who studied at Murray State University, Penland School of Crafts, North Carolina; Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Tennessee; and Appalachian Center for Crafts, Tennessee.
Severs has taught woodworking at Arrowmont, Penland and the Appalachian Center for Crafts as well as in the Murray, Kentucky Art Guild’s Very Special Arts Side-by-Side program. He is a member of the Furniture Society, the American Association of Woodturners and was the sole recipient of the Kentucky Arts Council Emerging Artist Award in 2016. He maintains a studio in Murray, Kentucky, where he also teaches.
Severs states, “Woodworking is a collaboration between the tree, modern materials and myself. It is very much about the process, the small steps coming together to create an object. I strive to accentuate the uniqueness of the wood with composition and pattern while pursuing excellence and endurance through precise and lasting craftsmanship.”
