In celebration of the beginning of Black history Month the Millcroft Gallery is featuring artist Errol P. Bruce, who was born in the Caribbean, creates life through arts with the use of Marquetry, a technique dating back to the 16th century France. Although originally used as a decorative technique in furniture making and craft work, his work has transformed the technique into a mesmerizing art form. He uses tiny individual pieces of exotic wood from all over the world, some the size of a pin head, which
are inlaid to form an intricately detailed design. The vibrant colors are a reflection of his Trinidadian upbringing and his work as a costume designer for Trinidad’s well known “Carnival” celebration.
Errol’s work has been on display in various New York and Florida galleries, and he has won and received various awards, certificates, and recognition for his artistic ability to create amazing results utilizing his skills in Marquetry:
- Individual Art Showcase Award - Queens, NY
- Certificate of Recognition – Hempstead Long Island, NY
- Citation of Artistic Excellence – Nassau County Legislature
- Disney Festival of the Masters – Orlando, FL
He is one of the few artists in the country to practice Marquetry as an art form. Errol has taught summer classes in Marquetry at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. Moving to Georgia, Errol’s artwork was on exhibit for several weeks at the famous Tubman Museum in Macon, Georgia.
Errol was recently featured on WCPO’s “Cincy Lifestyle” program. He has made Ohio his home and is proud to introduce you to the art of “Marquetry.”
