Wood-turning exhibits from 18 artists displaying 53 pieces of work are on display through the end of July at the Lincoln Cultural Center, 403 East Main Street in Lincolnton.  The Arts Council of Lincoln County held a reception and announced awards for the show "Wood-Turning: the Known & the Unknown" Wednesday evening (July 2nd).  

The first place prize of $500 went to Robert Bruce Lacey.  Second prize of $300 was awarded to Gary Ritchie.  Third prize of $100 was awarded to Tim Rinehardt. Honorable mentions included Tom Denne, Jerry Ostrander, Michael McNeilly, William  McInnis, Harold Lineberger and Bob Hodges.

Don Olsen, who helped organize the show, said this year's exhibit included works from wood-turners from Lincoln, Catawba, Burke, Cleveland, Gaston, Mecklenburg & Iredell counties. 

The works will be on display during regular Cultural Center hours through the end of the month.

At King's Office Supply, 227 East Main Street, artworks made using old typewriter parts by artists from UMAR Art on Main are on display during regular store hours through July 11th.

There is no charge for admission to either display.  Many of the wood-turning items at the Cultural Center are available for purchase.
