Utilitarian and beautiful best describe July’s exhibit at Marysville’s Lee Dam Center for Fine Art, which features local and guest wood workers’ creations from the familiar organic product.

Many of the pieces are for sale, and the 10 percent commission goes to the Marshall County Arts Cooperative and the art center.
