The East Tennessee Woodworker’s Guild and the Knoxville Arts and Culture Alliance present The 21st Master Wood­work­ers Show at the Empo­rium Gallery in Knoxville, Tenn., Novem­ber 572021.

The goal of this bien­nial show is to high­light the work of crafts­peo­ple and artists in East Tennessee and the surround­ing region. The 2021 show calls for all types of wood­work, from tradi­tional to whim­si­cal, in fine furni­ture, cabi­netry, turning, sculp­ture, and lutherie. Selected works will be displayed in a gallery setting. Exhibitors are encour­aged to display port­fo­lios along with their featured piece(s). Although there are no formal booths, exhibitors are encour­aged to be present as much as possi­ble. For complete show infor­ma­tion, visit the event website at master​wood​work​ers​.org. From the website, you can apply via e‑mail. Regard­less of your inten­tion to apply or not, please take a few minutes to sign up for our mailing list for updates on show happenings. 

The 2019 Master Wood­work­ers Show was a huge success, featur­ing 32 artists from 4 states. Over 2500 people attended the 3‑day show and several crafts­peo­ple garnered signif­i­cant sales from the gallery floor. There are no commis­sion fees on any work sold during this weekend show. 

Entries will be selected by a formal jury. The three-person jury panel will consist of; 

 Aspen Golann

 Chris Hedges

The appli­ca­tion dead­line is August 1st, 2021. The entry fee is $65.00 for up to three (3) pieces of work, with an addi­tional fee of $20.00 per addi­tional piece over three. The appli­ca­tion and images of your entries must be submit­ted by the August 1st dead­line. Images will be converted to a blind, numbered digital slideshow for the jury panel.
