New Hope, PA – New Hope Arts Center announces the return of the area’s most anticipated annual art event, Works in Wood, opening on Saturday, December 9, 2023.  Works in Wood’s contemporary work honors the woodworking tradition of Bucks County and was created by the arts center’s founder, Robin Larsen in 1999, featuring unique sculpture, turned objects and fine furniture.

With nearly 60 different artists, Works in Wood honors the rich cultural heritage of Bucks County woodworking while celebrating the new visions of the contemporary artists who reside in our region and beyond. As a national juried show, Works in Wood features artwork from the finest talent in the country today. Works are not limited by function but must be original in design and artists must incorporate at least 50% of wood in each piece.

The annual exhibition features functional and non-functional works, studio furnitureturningsconstructions, free standing and wall mounted sculpture and vessels in which artists use wood as their primary media.
