Works in Wood 2020

November 21, 2020 - January 10, 2021

New Hope Arts’ Works in Wood 2020 In-gallery and Online Exhibition Open through January 10, 2021

Works in Wood 2020 at New Hope Arts traditionally celebrates the woodworking heritage of Bucks County. The national draw of this exceptional curated exhibition, features the finest contemporary examples of fine furniture, turned objects and sculpture and innovative uses of the wood medium. Now in its 21st anniversary year, the annual juried exhibition is presented in live and virtual formats in keeping with the challenges of hosting publicly accessible events. Viewing opportunities, timed admission, and private viewing options are available in the gallery. Protocols for viewing the exhibition include social distancing and wearing masks. 10 at a time are admitted to the gallery and reservations are suggested.

"This year brings more than 7 new exhibitors into the fold of our seasoned woodworkers, possibility because exhibition opportunities in a gallery setting have been limited. We are grateful for the enthusiastic response from visitors and exhibitors alike, and we have over 100 works on view," says Carol Cruickshanks, New Hope Arts Executive Director.

Jurors Joe Seltzer and Ward Steven, active woodworkers and sculptors, represent the top regional exhibition groups -the Pennsylvania Woodturners and Echo Lakes Collaborative. Both jurors were impressed by the wide variety of entries and selected 6 Jurors' Chose awards.
