The World Turns: AAW@25
This high-octane exhibit features work by several prominent artists who were also founders of the American Association of Woodturners in 1986, as well as younger artists whose work in wood was influenced and supported by their affiliation with the AAW. The AAW fosters an environment of open sharing and learning, and has been instrumental in advancing both the techniques and growing prominence of wood art in the world today.
Historical importance aside, this exhibition, curated by Kevin Wallace of the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts, brings together an impressive array of works in wood. Don't miss it!

Art From the Lathe
Selections from the AAW Permanent Collection
through November 10
Art From the Lathe features work by noted wood artists working in a variety of styles. Designed to illustrate the range of artistic expression and techniques used by masters of the field, the exhibit includes works that are 'pure' - in other words created entirely on the lathe - and pieces that have been carved, burned, sandblasted, segmented and reconstructed.
Also on display: vintage lathes and reproductions of lathes from the Viking era to the late 1700s.
