At the Show - Exhibits

Displayed at the 2009 Good Sam Show, this week's exhibits focus on the fine art of turnings in miniature. Cynthia Howe of  Santa Maria, CA and Moonyeen Moller of Foster City, CA finished their shops in distinctively different ways. The finely crafted turnings seen here delight the senses with their artistic creativity and unique designs. All of the forms work in harmony, yet stand distinctively in their own space.

Cynthia Howe built her "One Good Turn" gallery in the tradition of charming California coastal shops and galleries. She incorporated a whimsical wallpaper border that runs around the top of the room. It reads "One good turn deserves another...and another...and another...". Go to Cynthia's website to see a detailed write-up and more photos of both shops, cynthiahoweminiatures.com

While of similar design, Moonyeen Moller's gallery "The Turning Point" is very upscale and sophisticated. She finished it with white walls and dark formal fixtures. Moonyeen then incorporated strong dramatic lighting to show off her collection of turnings.
