New Exhibit Coming to Ottosen Gallery

The Desert Botanical Garden presents new works by world-renowned artists Philip and Matt Moulthrop. The exhibition features a collection of turned wood that reveals the inherent beauty of trees and shrubs native to Arizona. Woodturning has been a Moulthrop family legacy for three generations and their pieces are immediately recognizable by their distinct contemporary forms. The exhibit, Arizona Indigenous: New Turned Wood by Philip & Matt Moulthrop, opens February 6 and is included with paid Garden admission or membership.
