WORCESTER - Worcester artist John Hyden has a tiger by the tail and no way of knowing exactly how big the beautiful beast might turn out to be. In a new show at the Worcester Center for Crafts, “Plywood Tiger,” Hyden will unveil for the first time the full scope of his striped wooden creation - so far.
One hundred and four 8-inch by 8-inch plywood panels, their wood grain painted in tiger-like yellow and black, make up the signature piece in the show, which also includes nine large collages, some drawings and a sculpture. The exhibition kicks off with a reception, which is free, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 22 in the center’s Krikorian Gallery, 25 Sagamore Road, and runs through Nov. 5.
