Artistry in Wood is the annual exhibit presented by the Sonoma County Woodworkers Association in concert with the Museums of Sonoma County. Staged every year since 1982, it is recognized as one of the premier fine woodworking shows in North America.

Artistry in Wood features the work of the Association’s members. Pieces accepted for exhibition must pass criteria established by a board of jurors. Those accepted are then judged by a non-member panel of experts that awards prizes to the finest pieces in each of several categories including furniture, turnery, boxes and artwork. Awards of Excellence and Best of Show are coveted prizes that reflect the highest quality of artistry and craftsmanship. Many of those award-winning pieces are then featured in prestigious publications such as Fine Woodworking.
Artistry in Wood in its usual format for 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. In its place, we featured a display of member works in the Museum Art Gallery. This year, we look forward to the return of the in-person show opening November 12, 2021. Former Show entries can be found in the Wood Forum, starting with the December 2018 Issue.
