The Southeast is home to some of the finest wood artists and craftsmen in the country. The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation (OCAF), an arts and culture organization in Northeast Georgia, is mounting a significant show featuring the works of over 35 of the region’s most talented woodworkers. Furniture makers, wood turners, and fine artists will be displaying one-of-a-kind pieces made from exotic woods and veneers, reclaimed lumber, natural edge slabs, and even twigs and bark.

Wood Works: A Regional Exhibition, an invitational show, will feature furniture, vessels, functional art and sculpture in styles from traditional to extremely innovative and whimsical. Whether you come to look or come to buy you will definitely leave inspired.
