Craft Research Fund—Exhibition Grant


Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking opened at the Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia on October 4, 2019 to a very enthusiastic reception, welcoming an audience of over 1300 on opening night. The exhibition, in comparison to the companion book that is in development, shows the work of women-identified makers in its haptic, tangible, material, and phenomenological form. In selecting works for the exhibition, they were particularly interested in the places and works in which women are pushing the boundaries of what’s conventionally thought of as woodworking, blurring it with adjacent fields of practice.
