Free-Range Carving Meetup

January 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Free-Range Carving Meetup | Thurs. Jan. 18, 2024 | 5:30 – 7:30 pm ET | In-person

Click HERE to RSVP

Grab your widdling tools and wood for an evening of carving, conversation, and camaraderie. This is a free-range event, so be sure to bring your own supplies.

While you’re here, get inspired by our current exhibition, current exhibition, FLOE: A Climate of Risk | The Fictional Archaeology of Stephen Talasnik. Stephen Talasnik has built an artistic career by exploring the links between drawing and building. In FLOE, Talasnik returns to his hometown of Philadelphia to build a fictional narrative of a natural disaster brought about by climate change. The “archaeological collection” presented in the exhibition was discovered by an imagined group of curious children based on Talasnik’s own childhood experiences. FLOE features an immersive and mesmerizing installation by Talasnik that is simultaneously local and universal, illustrated in wood, bamboo, and composite materials. The exhibition also includes works from the Museum’s permanent collection, curated by Talasnik and selected to represent the remnants of a lost world. Don’t miss this very special experience.

This event is free to the public. The Museum for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
