Exhibit Detail

We invited an exceptional group of 25 artists from Hawai‘i and the continental U.S, all with distinguished careers in woodworking, to make one new piece for this exhibition. The work could be utilitarian or conceptual in design, with a refined conventional appeal or freeform fusion approach, using wood as the primary material.
The select group of woodworking artists from across the U.S. includes Roger Asay & Rebecca Davis (AZ), Joel Bright (HI), Andy Buck (NY), Robert Butts (HI), Miriam Carpenter (PA), Marcus Castaing (HI), Michael Cullen (CA), Shaun Fleming (HI), Mats Fogelvik (HI), Hank Gilpin (RI), Katie Hudnall (IN), Yuri Kobayashi (ME), Tai Lake (HI),  Kristin LeVier (ID), Ted Lott (MI), Wendy Maruyama (CA), Peter Naramore (HI), Craig Nutt (TN), Dean Pulver (NM), Paul Schurch (CA), Michael Patrick Smith (HI), Koji Tanaka (CA), Ricardo Vasquez (HI), and Alan Wilkinson (HI).
