    Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking
    Guest curators: Laura Mays and Deirdre Visser

    All over North America and in all kinds of genres, women are making fantastic work in wood. Understanding that woodworking has historically been a male-dominated field, this exhibition showcases work by women that demonstrates the breadth of contemporary woodworking and the ways these makers are both expanding the edges of the field and holding down the center. Making a Seat at the Table presents a diversity of objects made with a diversity of intentions: from small-batch products to one-off works, representing a range of technical approaches and scales and referencing an approach to woodworking that is rooted in questions of craft, use, the body, and domesticity.
