Artists’ Talk: Friday September 25, 6:30-8:30pm

Gallery 263 is pleased to present Women and Wood, a Curatorial Proposal Series exhibition that aims to demystify the presence of women in the woodworking world. Heather Dawson, Ellen Kaspern and Liz Welch will display an eclectic range of work in wood and mixed materials that includes turned vessels, cabinetry and tables.

Unlike other mediums which have experienced mainstream acceptance and promotion of women, woodworking continues to be dominated by men. The community of makers remains entrenched in outdated standards and expectations of what it means to be a woodworker. It is essential to create a space in which women are able to share and contribute to the craft. Women and Wood both displays fine, contemporary achievements of three women working in this medium, and embarks on the larger discussion of their presence in the field.
