ART + Wood = Woodpalooza@WICA

2014 Woodpalooza

August 30 thru September 1, 12:00-5:00 pm

Reception FRIDAY, August 29, 6:00 to 9:00 pm

Whidbey Island Center For The Arts

565 Camano Avenue, Langley, WA

Whidbey Island is fortunate to have so many talented woodworkers. Most work in small one or two-person shops. Woodpalooza represents a unique opportunity for us to let everyone in on the secret: some of the best woodworkers live and work right here.

>Most furniture and wood-art made today is mass-produced and often designed/built for low cost, short-term use (throw away). Woodpalooza presents an alternative that involves the talents of master craftsmen/women who make their living creating pieces that will beautifully endure for generations.

The exhibition is intended to simultaneously educate and inspire. An opportunity to view a wide variety of outstanding work up close can’t help but inform that woodworking as a profession is alive and well. Further, we hope that these examples of creativity will inspire others (especially the next-generation) to aspire to consider joining us as a career. The Guild invites everyone to come and experience the numerous types of woods in a wide variety of forms while rubbing shoulders with the artisans who carry on one of our oldest and most endearing professions.
