We would like to invite the public to attend the opening reception of the Helena Woodworkers' Guild Annual Art of Wood exhibit, at the Myrna Loy Center. The reception will be held from 6 to 10 pm during the Fall Downtown Helena Art Walk on November 9th, 2007. Please join us in enjoying delicious appetizers, desserts, wine, punch and live music throughout the evening.
The exhibit will be open to the public from November 2nd through the 18th during Myrna Loy box office hours (generally opens around 1 pm) Although some of the furniture you will see in the exhibit is not for sale or in private collections, if you see something you would like to own, you may contact the woodworker (through materials at the exhibit or their member galleries on our website) to find out about commissioning a piece like it.
The Helena Woodworkers' Guild has 20 members, ranging from hobbyists to professionals, from inexperienced (but enthusiastic) woodworkers to seasoned studio-furniture makers. Anyone with an interest in woodworking (sculpture, furniture, cabinetry, turning, carving, building) is welcome to join our Guild. Come to our opening and visit with some of our wood-artists who will be in attendance. Or come to one of our meetings to find out more about what we do as a group.
We will be updating our website and members' galleries in the coming days and weeks. Please bookmark our site and check back for updates. Thank you for your visit!
