Join us for First Friday and the opening of Overlap: The Windgate Wood Arts Residency Program! Now in its twenty-fifth year, the Center for Art in Wood’s Windgate Wood Arts Residency program (long known as ITE, International Turning Exchange) is a collegial experience that encourages an open exchange of creative and technical innovations in the field of art in wood. Throughout the summer, the resident fellows dedicate eight weeks to focusing on individual and collaborative work, developing peer relationships, and testing their vision and skill in the material. As a group, the work of the 2022 cohort represents a wide range of approaches—from historic furniture techniques to rapid prototyping and digital fabrication, from studio furniture to multimedia performance. The Overlap exhibition celebrates the experimentation, research, and resolution that takes place during this unique, intensive residency.
The 2022 Windgate Resident Fellows are:
James Maurelle, Artist, Philadelphia PA, Janice Smith, Artist, Philadelphia PA, Christopher Storb, Artist, Philadelphia PA, USA); Kailee Bosch, Student Artist, Fort Collins, CO, USA); Katie Hudnall, Visual Documentarian, Madison, WI, USA); D Wood, Scholar, Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

Brown Fund, Bresler Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Philadelphia Cultural Fund, and Windgate Foundation. In-kind support was provided by Boomerang, Inc. and Sunlite Corporation.
