The American Association of Woodturners' (AAW) Gallery of Wood Art Professional Outreach Program is pleased to announce its 2017 annual international exhibition, The Sphere-Second Round. Now in their 11th year, the exhibitions bring a lively, international mix of smaller-scale works by established and emerging wood artists to one of Minnesota's best "hidden treasure" galleries. The exhibition runs through June 4, 2017.
While the title theme might bring to mind visions of wooden billiard balls, the works in the show showcase wonderfully imaginative and very individual interpretations. Using a wide variety of woods and techniques, the artists met the challenge of working within a small scale (6" x 6" x 6" maximum) and a tight title theme with pieces ranging from wryly humorous to highly personal to apocalyptic.
The Sphere-Second Round will premiere at the AAW Gallery of Wood Art, Landmark Center, 75 W. 5th St, St. Paul, MN, and run March 5 through June 4, before traveling to the 2017 AAW International Woodturning Symposium, Kansas City Convention Center, Kansas City, MO, June 22-25. All works will be sold in a simultaneous live/online auction on Saturday, June 24, 2017.
The AAW Gallery of Wood Art is located in historic Landmark Center in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota. The gallery features 4-6 exhibitions annually of contemporary sculpture and craft in wood, as well as educational displays and a gift shop. Live woodturning demonstrations are presented the 3rd Sunday of each month from 12-3pm. To learn more, visit galleryofwoodart.org
