BlackRock Center for the Arts invites woodturners to submit entries for HANDCRAFTED, a turned wood exhibition juried by Fleur Bresler, who is a collector and a Commissioner for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The exhibition is dedicated to enhancing awareness of turned wood, and providing a venue for woodturners from our region to share their functional, sculptural, and creative endeavors. Woodturners over age 18 living in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia may submit entries of original works created with the past three years (October 2014 – December 2017). Selected works will be on display in the Kay Gallery from January 13 through February 24, 2018. Entry Deadline is December 17, 2017. (image: Chuck Engstrom)

Online Application can be made through Submittable (a secure Call for Entries website where an entry fee can be paid by credit card or PayPal) at this link:
For any turners who do not wish to apply online, it is also possible to mail a CD where they have saved digital images along with a check for the entry fee. Or they can email images to me and mail a check for the entry fee. I am happy to answer questions anyone has.
We really want to make this exhibit of Turned Wood a success. I hope you will submit images of your work and also encourage other turners to enter their work to be part of an exhibit celebrating turned wood.
About the Judge and Sponsor: All entries will be carefully reviewed by our esteemed juror, Fleur Bresler, who is a collector of turned wood and a huge supporter of woodturners. She supports craft schools, art organizations and museums with her philanthropy and has donated many pieces to museum collections. Bresler has funded exhibits and programs at the Renwick Gallery and is also a commissioner for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. I believe she has one of the largest collections of turned wood in the U.S. (possibly the largest collection). Bresler is also one of the founders of The Center for Art in Wood (a wonderful museum of turned wood in Philadelphia, PA).Non-members please use the Contact Us form to for referral to the ad owner, who will contact you at the number or email you provide in the form.
