THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!

The AAW extends a huge thank you to everyone who attended AAW’s 33rd Annual International Symposium in Raleigh, North Carolina. We hope you enjoyed your experience and took away useful techniques, treasured friendships, and maybe even a little something from the trade show and auctions as a memento!

We are especially indebted to the more than 230 volunteers whose contributions were instrumental in making the event a success. As a nonprofit organization, we rely very heavily on volunteers to make each symposium happen. On the ground locally under the direction of team leads, volunteers worked diligently on a variety of tasks before and during the event. All our volunteers contributed a tremendous amount of work and without them there would not have been a symposium.

Special Presentation:

From Industrial Trade to Art: Woodturning’s Remarkable Evolution, A Spirited Discussion with David Ellsworth and Betty J. Scarpino

Thursday, July 11, 2019 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (following the Opening Ceremonies)

  

Join two legendary woodturners who have both witnessed and influenced the remarkable evolution of modern woodturning from its inception in the 1970s to today. This special presentation with audience participation will take a look at contemporary woodturning’s unique path.

 

How did woodturning evolve from its industrial roots to where we are today? 

How does the craft of woodturning intersect with the art world? 

What is the importance of labels in defining our identity? 

Where do we go from here?

 

How do you define yourself as a woodturner? The labels we use, such as bowl turner, pen turner, ornamental, segmented, production, traditional, hobbyist, architectural, and multiaxis, developed gradually over time. But the notion of artistic work resides within all these categories. In fact, many turners today boldly proclaim their work as art, regardless of outside approval. When, how, and why did this happen? In a lively back-and-forth, David and Betty will offer their insights and opinions, as well as show images of some of the primary innovators’ artwork. Perhaps the most compelling question: Where does woodturning go from here?
