EAST TROY — A winter art exhibit at the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute features one-of-a-kind works by artist Tom Raushke of Palmyra. 

Fifteen hand-carved wood sandhill cranes with 17-inch wingspans float from the ceiling in the first floor gallery.

Other Raushke pieces on display feature finely detailed carvings of the natural world, including the interior life of a Native American Kiva, complete with ladder and petroglyphs, all contained in a vessel that can fit in the palm of one hand.
Raushke and his wife and fellow artist, Kaaren Wiken, own Xn-Trix Studio in Palmyra. Two of Wiken’s embroideries are featured in the exhibition.

The winter exhibit runs through mid-March and is part of quarterly art exhibitions featured at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute and hosted by the Good Earth Church of the Divine, an Interfaith community. The exhibition is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and by appointment on weekends.
