Richard Nolan's Irish Bell Woodworking

The opening reception for Richard Nolan, "Development in Art - One Project at a Time" will be held Nov 15th from 6-8pm at JCC"s Center Gallery.  The exhibition will remain on display through Dec 13th. 

A self described perfectionist, Rich expressed his creative side as a youth by drawing in pencil, winning a Gold Key award in high school. Then, by chance, he was introduced to mechanical drafting, which was embraced as a new art form and showed the way to his calling as a mechanical engineer.

For 25 years, Rich expressed his artistry through his drafting while becoming an accomplished designer holding numerous U.S. patents; his career culminating in building his own business designing and manufacturing fiber optic components.  Now as his business retires, Rich focuses his design and creative energies on hand crafting fine art sculptures from wood.

Rich's creations are constructed principally from cherry and black walnut hardwoods; utilizing conventional woodworking tools, a great deal of hand sanding and a strong reliance on self-developed techniques used for seamless joining.  The resulting collections of projects are truly unique in form and maintain the clean sophisticated style symbolic of the reputation he developed as a respected design engineer.

The Center Gallery is located in the JCC’s College Center, 2nd floor and is open Monday-Thursday 8am-7pm and Friday 8am-3pm. The Tri-County Arts Council Gallery is open Monday-Wednesday; Friday 9am-6pm and Thursday 9am-5pm and is located at 110 West State St Olean, NY.
