Instant Gallery, Exhibitions & Auctions

 

Instant Gallery

The AAW Symposium’s Instant Gallery is the largest display of turned-wood objects under one roof! The open member show features more than 1,000 art works and crafts in wood by woodturners who attending the symposium. Woodturners of all skill levels will be represented. Many of the works are for sale. Symposium attendees are invited to make, bring along, and display up to three pieces of turned work in the Instant Gallery.

 

 

Exhibitions

Explore the AAW’s outstanding international exhibitions of innovative sculptural and functional works in wood.

 

Continuum, Themed Member Exhibition

Although our annual theme often relates to the Symposium host city or state, the theme for 2019 is more universal: Continuum. Life is a journey. We all start somewhere and end up somewhere else. Depending on where we are born and when, on the influence of others, and on sometimes seemingly random events, our course is influenced and shaped. As a turner, you are part of a legacy that stretches back more than 2,000 years. You are also practicing an evolving craft that looks forward into the future, kept vibrant and ever evolving by technical innovations and new creative discoveries. Woodturning is a part of our life experience, shaped by who and what we know.

Traces, POP Exhibition

The 2019 exhibition and auction will feature original small-scale work in the theme. Traces can be interpreted in any number of ways, as a noun (something left behind or immeasurably small, the harness traces of a horse) or as a verb (to seek, or to set in context, to outline). It can be perceived in relation to science, history, art, life. How the theme is interpreted, and in what materials, is up to the artist.

 

Auctions


The AAW’s live benefit auctions will also be online! Regardless of where you are located, now you have a chance to buy that beautiful bowl, platter, or sculpture from the comfort of your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
