For more information visit the Art Tour’s website.

Bob Englund, Woodturner

17 Cameron Cove, Munsonville, NH

Guest artist: Nancy Belsky, Laura Singer

Bob Englund, the Granite Lake Woodturner, has found woodturning to be a perfect retirement avocation.  He creates lamps and bud-vases from fireplace wood, intentionally including segments of bark and untouched rough surfaces created by the woodsplitter to be part of the final product.  He sometimes retrieves logs from the roadside from which he makes vases and bowls.  Intentionally incorporating defects in the final products, he refers to holes and other irregularities as “artistic embellishments”.

Mary Wood Cornog, Painter

133 Nubanusit Road, Nelson, NH

6/10 mile from intersection with Tolman Pond Rd., dark blue-gray house on left.

Mary Wood Cornog has happily returned to painting after several years away.  She takes her inspiration from nature, science, music, or whatever produces a vision.  The results range in style from realism to impressionism to abstract in compositions and colors uniquely her own.

Frankie Brackley Tolman, colorful painter

43 Nubanusit Road (2nd Floor), Nelson, NH

I am constantly bowled over by the heartbreaking beauty of the world and am compelled to translate the emotional response that I experience (what Milton Avery called “the ecstasy of the moment”) to paint and paper.
