Patricia Kane, curator of American Decorative Arts at YUAG, talks about the broad scope as well as intricate details of the exhibit.
She points out that the Waterburys like to get to know the artists represented in their collection and asked them to comment on their pieces - recollections about making the work and ideas they were pursuing.
"What you'll find here on the labels," Kane says, "is not just a little chat about the artist and his or her oeuvre, but also a statement, which is the artist's voice that adds to the richness of the presentation."
Although much of the work was created in the last 25 years, Kane says a lot of it shows the trajectory of where the wood field has been, starting in the period right after World War II.
"They sold at stores like Gumps," Kane says.
"He began to use chain saws to shape his objects and leaves the tracks of the chain saw visible," Kane says.
At the same time, Kane says, a group of artists were doing much more precise, refined work, like Michael Shuler, who makes turned vessels out of pine cones, impregnated with epoxy.
"He then turns them so the geometry of each leaf of the pine cone makes this wonderful patterning on the surface," Kane explains.
Patricia Kane will talk with Ruth and David Waterbury about their collection.

After all, "Rhode Island is not that big a state," said Patricia E. Kane, lead curator of American decorative arts at the Yale University Art Gallery.
A decade ago she started collecting data for Yale's online Rhode Island Furniture Archive, intending to cover all the state's cabinetmakers and their surviving products in private and museum collections. But the site,, soon ballooned past her expectations.
If Yale relied only on its own digging, Ms. Kane said, "I could be 110 before the thing was perfect."
Ms. Kane's team has scoured Rhode Island government archives, recording references to anyone who built furniture, houses, ships and coffins. Such dry paperwork has yielded vivid moments: when artisans went bankrupt, their tools were meticulously inventoried. "It all felt very real," Ms. Kane said.
"I hadn't anticipated all the little steps involved in keeping it current," Ms. Kane said.
