December 2020-March 2021
Presented by the Sonoma County Woodworkers Association
For over thirty years, the Museum of Sonoma County and the Sonoma County Woodworkers Association (SCWA) have collaborated to present an annual, juried showcase of fine regional woodwork.
During these unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Museum continues the legacy of this long-running exhibition by presenting Artistry in Wood in slightly different form. This year’s exhibition combines new and previously completed works in a unique survey of fine woodwork from our region.
The exhibition reflects the legacy of arts and crafts on California’s north coast, as well as the local resonance between wood and the landscape. The work in the exhibition shows historical and regional influences, such as the distinctive style exemplified by the woodworking program at The Krenov School at Mendocino College, led for many years by James Krenov. Artistry in Wood is also known for work that pushes the boundaries of wood as a medium. The large-scale work in the Museum’s sculpture garden, Sequoia, by local artist Bruce Johnson, is representative of the bold approach taken by some of the artists who have exhibited their work in this show.
While slightly revised, this installment of Artistry in Wood upholds the high standards and traditions of artistic expression from past exhibitions. All works are meticulously crafted by members of the association and represent creative possibilities with the medium of wood, craftsmanship, and art.
This exhibition is sponsored in part by the Sonoma County Woodworkers Association.
