We are pleased to announce the jury selections for the 2017 AAW Member Exhibition, Waves of Grain. This annual exhibition celebrates creativity and technical excellence along the full spectrum of turning from traditional to contemporary.

Our 2017 jurors were Michael Wilkerson, Associate Professor and Chair of the Kansas City Art Institute's sculpture program; professional artist and turner Hayley Smith; and collector and turner Mark Wollschlager. Using a blind jurying process, they selected 18 out of the 60 pieces submitted, initially evaluating each piece in four key areas: aesthetic appeal, originality, interpretation of the theme, and craftsmanship, and then selecting the final pieces with the overall balance of the exhibition in mind.

Waves of Grain will premiere at the 2017 AAW International Symposium in Kansas City, June 22-25, with an opening reception Thursday evening.

Congratulations to our juried artists:

John Beaver | Sally Burnett | Kip Christensen | Luc Deroo | Jeanne Douphrate | Dewey Garrett | Michael Gibson | Robert Glibbery | Jan Greenwald | Stephen Hatcher | Gerard    Hennessy | Kalia Kliban | John Lutz | Pat and Karen Miller | Joshua Salesin | Jay Shepard | Justin Stephen | Niel Stoutenburg
