Artist’s Reception for Hawley Wood Unique Creations

Event Time: 

On Friday, March 15, the Community Center for the Performing Arts will proudly host an Artist’s Reception for Hawley Wood Unique Creations from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the Lobby Art Gallery of the WOW Hall.

Says the artist:

"My name is Robert Hawley.  I was born in 1941 and have lived in Oregon most of my life.  I have retired from 30 years of business management, found I needed a hobby to enjoy and to continue keeping busy. 

Art was new to me and while searching for doing something unique I purchased a scroll saw.  I spent my first year making wooden animal jig saw puzzles for children. Then I made company logos and humorous signs.  I needed more of a challenge so I created a way to make people’s faces that was very unique to other artists.

The faces I cut look very realistic.  Also I began my own creations of art with unusual scenes using hardwood with attractive grain patterns and colors.  I am forever searching for new ideas with my scroll saw art and enjoying my hobby.

My art has been sold successfully at Maude Kern’s Art Center and New Zone Gallery in Eugene, Emerald Art Gallery in Springfield, Florence Regional Art Alliance and Elsinore Fine Art Gallery in Salem.

As my last name is HAWLEY and my art is with wood I call my hobby “HAWLEY WOOD UNIQUE CREATIONS”.
