Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking

Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking will present works by 43 artists and makers from throughout North America.

Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking with Guest curators: Laura Mays and Deirdre Visser

All over North America and in all kinds of genres, women are making fantastic work in wood. Understanding that woodworking has historically been a male-dominated field, this exhibition showcases work by women that demonstrates the breadth of contemporary woodworking and the ways these makers are both expanding the edges of the field and holding down the center.
