About the Gallery

Located in downtown Saint Paul's historic Landmark Center, the Gallery of Wood Art offers an often surprising and always engaging view of contemporary art created in wood.

Although all pieces on exhibit have been at least partially created on a lathe, the diversity of techniques, subjects, materials and ideas of each artist keeps each exhibit fresh and engaging.

The Gallery of Wood Art also features educational exhibits, a display of vintage lathes, and a gallery gift store offering turned items, books and DVDs.

The Gallery of Wood Art is sponsored by the American Association of Woodturners and has received additional assistance from the Saint Paul Cultural STAR program and the Minnesota State Arts Board.
