Call for Entries: Artist Showcase 2022
"Discovering new talent is one of the most inspiring events during the AAW Symposium, and I can’t wait to see what’s on this year's horizon." David Ellsworth
Each year the Professional Outreach Program (POP) showcases two wood artists at the AAW’s Annual International Symposium. 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 give two demonstrations each, and participate in a panel discussion of their work led by David Ellsworth. Artists receive a complimentary Symposium registration; a featured display in the Special Exhibitions area; demonstration and panel compensation; three days of lodging at the AAW host hotel, and up to $300 in travel expenses.
Past Artist Showcase awardees have included Roberto Ferrer, Laurent Niclot, Helga Winter, Sally Burnett, Kristin LeVier, Jim Sannerud, Keith Holt, and others.
