Detail from free-standing towel rack by Laura Goemaat is part of the "Iron 2000" exhibit at FrameWright Gallery in Bothell.

   Unique works of hand-forged iron and steel will be on display in Bothell through Feb. 22. For the fourth year, a group of master blacksmiths are displaying their works at FrameWright Gallery. This year's exhibit is entitled "Iron 2000."

   Maria Cristali, Jerry Culberson, Laura Goemaat, and Paul Thorne will be returning with new creations from the forges. They'll be joined by three new contributors to the show: Paul Casey, Jepheth Howard, and Corky Storer.

   These artist blacksmiths represent a wide range of experience and style. All demonstrate a passion for the art of hand forging hot iron and steel. Many of the works on display are functional pieces of furniture or home decor, as well as being works of fine art.

   FrameWright is located in downtown Bothell, just south of Main Street at 18104 102nd Ave NE. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday-Thursday from 10 to 6; Friday from 10 to 5; and Saturdays from 10 to 4. For more information, call Lynn at (425) 483-7385 during gallery hours.
