In March of 2015 the Museum lost the beloved chestnut tree that had grown along side the main building, providing welcoming shade to visitors for over 100 years. The wood from the tree was given to local artisans who have created everything from an outdoor bench to intricately turned bowls and vases. Come watch these talented woodturning artists in action as they give new life to wood from the chestnut tree.
Pieces will be available for purchase at the Rental Sales Gallery.
Featured artists from Pacific Northwest Woodturning Guild, Northwest Woodturners, Cascade Woodturners, and American Association of Woodturners include:
