Continuum:  AAW’s 2019 Themed Member Exhibition Call for Entries

Entry period: January 1 to March 4, 2019. 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. For the theme Continuum, we are asking hat you create new work that reflects what you have learned and who (or what) has inspired you. Click here for more information.



Traces: 2019 POP Exhibition Call for Entries

Entry period: December 1, 2018, to February 4, 2019. Initially developed as an invitational exhibition with an emphasis on showing established, emerging, and international artists, the annual Professional Outreach Program (POP) exhibition was broadened several years ago to include a limited number of juried pieces. 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. To be considered, work must be of excellent quality, created for the exhibition, and relate to the title theme. The only other requirements are that it be 6" × 6" × 6" (15cm × 15cm × 15cm) or smaller in size, original, created at least in part on the lathe, and accompanied by a statement of up to 100 words on how the work relates to the theme.

2019 POP Artist Showcase

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 each give two demonstrations and participate in a joint discussion of their work led by David Ellsworth. Artists receive a complimentary symposium registration plus a small honorarium, and their work is displayed in the Special Exhibitions area. The 2018 artists were Sally Burnett and Vivien Grandouiller. The application period is August 15 to midnight on October 1, 2018. The application form will require an artist statement, CV/resume, statement of interest in the program, and at least two representative images. You will be able to edit your form at any time until the deadline by clicking the link at the bottom of your confirmation email. Applicants will be notified by October 31, 2018. If you have questions about the Artist Showcase program, please contact David Ellsworth or Andy Cole. Click here to apply.
