Maine Wood is a juried, biennial exhibition designed to showcase the breadth, creativity, and excellence of Maine’s woodworking community. For 2016 the Center received 90 submissions from 45 Maine artists and artisans. “This is our fifth biennial,” says Peter Korn, Executive Director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, “and it’s exciting to see a significant number of first-time exhibitors among the tried-and-true makers.”

Jurors for this year’s biennial were Peter Fleming, Head of Furniture at the Sheridan College Bachelor of Craft and Design Program in Toronto; Matthew Kenney, Senior Editor at Fine Woodworking; and Emily Zilber, curator at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.  For more information on the exhibition, visit the website here.
