Works in Wood 2017

The 18th year for New Hope Arts banner exhibition!

Works in Wood honors the rich cultural heritage of Bucks County woodworking while celebrating the new visions of the contemporary artists who reside in our region and beyond. As a national juried show, Works in Wood features artwork from the finest talent in the country today. Works are not limited by function but must be original in design and artists must incorporate at least 50% of wood in each piece.  The annual exhibition features functional and non-functional works, studio furniture, turnings, constructions, sculpture and vessels in which artists use wood as their primary medium.

Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony: Saturday,  November 18  5-8 pm

New Hope Arts hosts its 18th annual juried exhibition celebrating the woodworking tradition of Buck County from November 18, 2017 through January 7, 2018.  Featuring fine furniture, sculptural forms and vessels, more than 80 works in a wide range of styles and techniques, present an exciting view of the wood medium in the hands of 34 contemporary artists.

Jurors, Mark Sfirri, noted woodworker, curator  and professor emeritus of Bucks County Community College and John McDevitt, sculptor and designer of Solebury, selected this year’s exhibition from more than 400 individual works submitted.

Recognition of the jurors’ top entries will take place on November 18. For this first time this year, New Hope Arts is continuing the exhibition through the holiday season giving ample opportunity for visitors and local enthusiast to view the outstanding works on display.
