“IN THE ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE” WOODBLOCK PRINTS BY LAURA WILDER

Dalton’s American Decorative Arts

1931 James Street, Syracuse, NY 13206

November 4 through January 2

Exhibition, all works for sale

After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired, she learned printmaking, and submitted her vintage-style block prints to the Roycroft Renaissance Jury. Approved, she became a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and was soon elevated to Master Artisan status signifying very high quality design and execution.

Twenty years later, she continues to make block prints and paintings inspired by the beauty in nature, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the sweet, simple things in life.

Laura has won many awards and prestigious commissions for her work, which can be seen at shows, in many galleries and shops nationwide, and at www.laurawilder.com.

Laura Wilder’s woodblock prints will be exhibited among Stickley & other American Arts & Crafts furniture, period lighting, American Art pottery and other decorative arts.  The show opens Saturday, November 4th and runs through January 2nd at Dalton’s American Decorative Arts, 1931 James Street, Syracuse, NY.  The gallery’s number is 315-463-1568; website is www.daltons.com.  Dalton’s is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Dalton’s will be closed on Sundays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Updating

We have been diligently working on updating our new web site. It may be a bit confusing while I continue to learn about this new format. Some listings bury themselves in the categories while others fine there way front and center. I will figure this out! As I learn I will try to have the more important items show on the “Recently Added Inventory” on the home page. If that appears to not change it does not mean there could be news items listed. Have patience with me.

If you are ever looking for anything in particular please don’t hesitate to contact us. We have many pieces in inventory I have not had a chance to list. In the last 3 weeks we have had two collections arrive here at Dalton’s. If you see something and would like to talk just give me a call. I love talking Arts and Crafts!
