|Every year, several artists from around the world come together in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The group includes artists skilled at lathe work, turning wood into objects of beauty. Other participants include scholars and a photojournalist to interpret and document the event.
The event, which began in 1995, is sponsored by the Wood Turning Center, and has a profound international effect on the art and craft of woodturning.
Other supporters include:
The Windgate Charitable Foundation
Pennsylvania Council on the Arts
Philadelphia Cultural Fund
Friends of the Wood Turning Center
The event culminates in an exhibit of the summer's work in our gallery in Philadelphia which runs in 2009 from August 7th September 26th (see events for details), and is a great time to visit the Center.
