Since its inception, The Center for Art in Wood has been widely recognized as one of the most valuable resources for the education, preservation and promotion of the field of art made from wood. On October 10th, join Windgate ITE Resident Fellow and custom furniture maker Reed Hansuld for a talk about his work, which focuses on finding a balance between modern style, high quality craft, and functionality. In association with the Old City Festival on October 12th, the Center will also host artist wood-turning demonstrations in front of its headquarters and participate in the Marguerite Rodgers gallery vignette and scavenger hunt hosted at the TRUST space.
The Center currently houses over 1,500 permanent collection objects and annually mounts 4-5 exhibitions of new work and museum collection objects. It stages an 8-week annual Windgate ITE International Residency Program for artists, scholars and photojournalists, and has in-depth education and outreach programs.
