Nature/Nurture: 2020 POP Exhibition and Auction

Application period: December 1, 2019, to January 11, 2020, 11:59 p.m. CST.
The Professional Outreach Program (POP) is pleased to announce its 2020 exhibition and auction theme, Nature/Nurture. As always, the theme is meant to be a starting point for inspiration, and this year is no excep-tion: Is who we are and how we see things a matter of nature or nurture, or both? As turners, we usually are working with a natural medium: wood. Do you see evidence of nature’s nurturing in the material? How does craft nurture us? Do we nurture nature? Nature/Nurture is a theme that invites us to consider our relationship with making, or to explore the roles of nature and nurture in our lives, our families, the forest, and the world around us. Or, you may have another take on the theme entirely.
