Support the Center

Gallery Opening of "Extra-Human: The Art of Michael Ferris".

For 35 years, the Center for Art in Wood has been an advocate in the field of craft, connected artists, supported research, introduced a growing audience to the malleable, versatile, and endlessly fascinating material of wood.

Whether you are here in our museum or at home, you have been able to participate in robust discussions, exhibitions, activities, and educational programs that inspire, challenge, and draw us closer together. Think about what that has meant to you, especially over these past two years.
