New Town Art Gallery- Wood Turner Bill Casto
Location: New Town Art Gallery
Event Website

Bill Casto, a former William and Mary football coach and Apprentice School Athletic Director, creates nationally competitive wood sculptures.. He uses driftwood from local waters and weathered wood to carve interpretive or stylized pieces of art. He attempts to capture the essence of the wildfowl rather than a realistic duplication of his subject. His sculptures emphasize form, content, and movement. They are totally original and one of a kind. In 2013 his entry “Crane Dance” placed “Third Best in World” (Interpretive Division) in the prestigious Ward World Wildfowl Carving Championships. In 2014 his sculpture “Swan Dive” was judged “Second Best in World”.
