Turning to Art in Wood: A Creative Journey

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Philadelphia’s renowned Wood Turning Center as it takes a new name—The Center for Art in Wood—and moves to an exciting new location among the art galleries in Old City.

Turning to Art in Wood: A Creative Journey, curated by Gerard Brown, presents more than 100 exceptional art works from the Center’s museum collection, showcasing acquisitions from its earliest beginnings to today. From extraordinary bowls, wall art and furniture to abstract sculptures and newly imagined forms, objects are grouped in “conversations”—asking viewers to consider them from new perspectives.
