AAW Annual Member Exhibition: Dia•Log

The AAW is pleased to announce that the annual member exhibition title theme for 2018 is Dia•Log. Dia•log was chosen because it reflects the city of Portland’s strong community spirit and the state’s long logging history, but perhaps even more important, it speaks to the way in which our woodturning community provides common ground. As always, we look for themes that can be interpreted in multiple ways, and this one fits the bill well, offering interpretations from philosophical to down-to-earth. Working with wood is often described as a dialog between the maker and the material, and art as a dialog between object and viewer. There is also, of course, the simple truth that if an object is made of wood, it was probably once part of a log. Two artist awards will be given during the 2018 AAW International Symposium: a Masters’ Choice Award of $300 and a People’s Choice Award of $200. Entry fee: $25. Entries will be accepted online from December 15, 2017 through February 15, 2018. Deadline February 15, 2018. Learn more or sign up to be reminded when the application period opens.
