About Us
Since its inception in 1986, the Center for Art in Wood (formerly the Wood Turning Center) has been widely recognized by artists, collectors, scholars, and the public as a critical resource for the study of art, craft, and design in the material of wood. In its location in Old City, the Center offers free admission to its changing exhibitions and access to its permanent collection, which now numbers over 1,200 objects and includes turned objects, sculpture, studio furniture, works on paper, video, and more. The Center's research library contains over 25,000 images, artist files, and books that chart the history of wood turning and woodworking and their continuing evolution within the broader field of contemporary art. The Center for Art in Wood also organizes arts residencies, which are held on an annual basis, and The Wood Shed, a virtual site for accessing programs, talks, activities, and information.

Mission Statement
The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public's understanding and appreciation of it.

We achieve this mission through our permanent collection, exhibitions, collaborative residencies, educational programs and events, research library, documentation, and activities at the virtual program site www.thewoodshed.org.
