Intarsia Show At Sunset River Marketplace
June 21 - July 30

Press Release

June 30, 2005 – Calabash, North Carolina (NC) - Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, North Carolina is featuring the (wood) intarsia works of John H.Gouveia, Jr. through July 30 in a show entitled, "Intarsia: Story Telling in Wood."

Wood intarsia is basically inlaying pieces of wood that the artist has cut and shaped, in Gouveia's case with a scrollsaw, to create an image or series of images. Gouveia's subject matter ranges from figures and portraits to florals and animals, as well as more complex carvings to form entire scenes.

Gouveia began scroll sawing in 1996 and quickly discovered he had a natural affinity for the centuries-old art. In 2004, the Calabash, North Carolina artist was a First Place winner at the annual Scrollsaw Association of the World Expo for his intarsia Guardian Angel.

Gallery owner Ginny Lassiter said, "John's work always attracts a lot of attention in the gallery. For many people, this is their first encounter with intarsia, and John¹s skill level is very, very high. I'm looking forward to the show as much as my customers."

Sunset River Marketplace features the work of only local and regional artists from the two Carolinas. Over 150 potters, oil painters, watercolorists, glass blowers, jewelry designers, metal artists, fiber artists and other artisans are represented in the 10,000 square feet of this eclectic art gallery.

Since its opening in June 2002, Sunset River has evolved into a community center for art. There are two on-site kilns for the pottery students, art classes and workshops for both professional and amateur artists, a children's art program and a full-service framing facility.

Sunset River Marketplace is located at 10283 Beach Drive SW (NC 179), Calabash, NC 28467. Contact the gallery at 910.575.5999 and visit the website at
