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.

New Hope Arts Outdoor Sculpture Project

Is a cultural and recreational asset in these times when appropriate social distancing is practiced.

The Sculpture Project is still free accessible and walkable in an appropriate social distancing way! Great for cycling too since there are over 2 square miles of distance between our 20 installations along roadways and paths from the Borough of New Hope into Solebury.

Jack Rosen - Photographer

New Hope, PA photographer Jack Rosen (1923 - 2006) is considered by many to be one of the best "unknown" photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. Acclaimed primarily for his photos of New Hope and Bucks County, PA, Jack also was an outstanding photographer of celebrities, and his humorous yet telling editorial photos reveal his sense of justice, while appealing to our higher sense of ourselves. Read more about Jack...
