We are thrilled to welcome you to the Museum for Art in Wood! Access to our exhibitions and permanent collection is free of charge to all visitors.

The fellows are onto new beginnings. New art pieces are evolving on what seems like a daily basis. Rex is working on a very large sculpture. Zina is working on new techniques and ideas combining turned pieces with traditional Romanian carving. Adrien is beginning work on her new piece. Grant has begun carving on two new works that resemble Ginko leaves. Julia is carving a new piece as well.


Rex Kalehoff’ sketchbook (given to every fellow as a gift) full of drawings for new pieces. His wooden model is in foreground. Lots of other carvings in the background.
