Gerry HolzmanGerry Holzman has been a professional woodcarver since 1970, a carousel restorer since 1976. He learned the woodcarving trade by studying in England with the late Gino Masero, one of England’s 32 master carvers. During his career he has restored over 100 pieces of antique carousel art and has created approximately 250 pieces of original carousel art. Since 1984, Gerry has been the head carver and chief consultant for the Empire State Carousel.

This project, which features the work of over 1,000 craftspeople throughout New York State, culminated in the creation of a full-size operating merry-go-round; a truly unique machine that is entirely based on the theme of New York’s history and culture. Aptly described as a “museum you can ride on”, the carousel is on permanent display at the Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, NY.

Tannery Pond Community Center is located at 228 Main Street in North Creek. Gallery hours are 10 am – 4 pm, weekdays, and 12:30 – 3:30 pm on weekends.
