Exhibiting a legacy in woodturning
In “Moulthrop: A Southern Legacy, Three Generations of Woodturning,” opening with a 6-8 p.m. Saturday reception at the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art, it’s easy to see how works by the late grandfather Ed, father Philip and grandson share the language of graceful form while reflecting individual approaches and techniques.
Curated byCarr McCuiston of Signature Shop & Gallery, the exhibit through Dec. 18 is drawn from top Southern collections. 30 Atlanta St., Marietta. 770-528-1444, www.mariettacobbartmuseum.org. HOWARD POUSNER
Atlanta History Center CEO to retire
Atlanta History Center president and CEO Salvatore (Sal) G. Cilella Jr. has announced that he will retire after a 42-year museum career. An executive search committee has been formed, with hopes of hiring a successor by the time of Cilella’s March 2012 departure.
AHC board chairman Bill Shearer praised Cilella’s work since his 2006 arrival in establishing the Buckhead institution as a community resource. “He has positioned the History Center for a tremendous period of growth,” Shearer said.
Cilella will remain in Atlanta with his wife Marifred Cilella, head of Howard School, and plans to write a follow up to his 2009 book, “Upton’s Regulars: The 121st New York Infantry in the Civil War.” HOWARD POUSNER
