Humphrey Fellowship program at Cornell will share their personal stories of foods and flavors that are part of their cultural identity and traditions.

Exhibition: Woodwork by Lisa Narloch:
code: GE-0301 / $0.00
Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues March 1 - August 31
Class Details: Lisa Narloch’s recent work includes a variety of local woods from her own property and around Central New York. She is very careful to determine the state of each tree before it is gifted to her. Most of them have storm, rot or ant damage, and are already down. Some trees needed to be removed to expand a road, or were too close to buildings. She also uses 100% food grade hemp or walnut oils and beeswax (a gift from a local beekeeper) for natural finishes for the majority of her work. She has recently created some pieces from scrap wood she received from the arborists here at Cornell Botanic Gardens, which will be on display.
