Artistry in Wood is an annual exhibition presented by the Sonoma County Woodworkers Association (SCWA) in partnership with the Museum of Sonoma County. Staged every year since 1982, it is recognized as one of the premier fine woodworking shows in North America and has become a favorite among museum visitors.
Pieces accepted for exhibition must pass stringent criteria established by a board of jurors. Once pieces are accepted,a non-member panel of expert judges present prizes to the finest pieces in a wide range of categories including furniture, turnery, and artwork. Awards of Excellence and Best of Show are coveted prizes that reflect the highest quality of artistry and craftsmanship. Many of those award-winning pieces are then featured in prestigious publications such as Fine Woodworking.
