Artistry in Wood, 2017 Gallery



This gallery is a non-juried exhibition of wooden objects.  It will be held at CFB Kingston, Communications & Electronics museum, located on highway #2, June 10, 2017, from 9 AM to 3 PM.


Objectives.  There are two primary objectives of the event:

           First, to show the general public the work our members do

          Second, to advertise the existence of our two associations - to prospective members, to the arts community, and of course to the general public.

          It will also provide a venue for members of both associations to sell their work.

An Introduction to all Three Disciplines


 The gallery will also afford all three disciplines represented by the Kingston Wood Artisans Furniture & Cabinetmakers Group, the Kingston Wood Artisans Carvers & Sculptors Group, and the Kingston Woodturners Association, to educate and enlighten the gallery visitors about wood as an artistic medium.


We have been given permission to set up three sets of tables near the entry to the gallery room, which each discipline will be using as a informative display.  These tables will preferable be manned by members throughout the event, to answer any questions our visitors may have.  We will also be producing a power point presentation that will enhance the displayed material and provide information to any prospective members.



Waiver of Liability


The application form contains a waiver of liability statement, which will stipulate that the Kingston Wood Artisans, Kingston Woodturners Association and the CFB Kingston Communications & Electronics Museum shall be held free of any responsibility or liability for any damage or loss to the piece(s) entered into the gallery.  Applicants shall acknowledge by signing the form, that there will be neither cordons nor barriers around the pieces.  Individuals are responsible for the security of their pieces entered.

        Again, pieces may be offered for sale during the Gallery event.  All Makers are encouraged to place a business card or piece of paper that provides their name and contact information, to identify them as the Maker.  They may also place a card detailing information about their piece which may be of interest to the gallery attendees.  Makers are also encouraged to be on hand while the Gallery is in progress to answer questions that may be posed about their piece(s).
