We in the Cork Chapter are hugely proud of our member, Gerard Hennessy, who has had one of his pieces, Deliverance, selected by the jury for inclusion in the 2017 American Association of Woodturners AAW member exhibition, Waves of Grain. 

The  jurors were Michael Wilkerson, Associate Professor and Chair of the Kansas City Art Institute's sculpture program; professional artist and turner Hayley Smith and collector and turner Mark Wollschlager.  Using a blind jurying process, they selected 18 out of the 60 pieces submitted, evaluating them in four key areas:  aesthetic appeal, originality, interpretation of the theme, and craftsmanship.

The exhibition will premiere at the 2017 AAW International Woodturning Symposium, June 22-25, then travel to the AAW Gallery of Wood Art for display September 10-December 31.
