AAW's 2016 POP Artist Showcase
Each year the Professional Outreach Program (POP) of the AAW showcases two wood artists. They are either experienced artists who have made significant contributions to the woodturning field but have not received appropriate recognition or emerging artists who have the potential to make significant contributions to the field. The two selected artists each give two demonstrations and receive free symposium registration plus a small honorarium.
Their work is displayed prominently in the Instant Gallery. The 2014 artists were Jason Schneider and Steven Kennard, and the 2015 artists were Kristin LeVier and Helga Winter. Artist applications are invited for the June 2016 AAW symposium in Atlanta, Georgia. Applications will be juried by the POP committee.
