AAW Grant Auction – Submit a Photo by 3-7-2014 for consideration
Changes Ahead for EOG Symposium Auction June 13 -15 2014 in Phoenix
Fundraising has gone global for many organizations, and in 2014 the AAW will be joining the movement by putting the Educational Opportunity Grant auction online! The EOG program is a vital part of the AAW, offering grants for instruction, equipment, travel, and special events to AAW members, local chapters, and educational organizations.
The new auction format is expected to increase exposure and expand the audience beyond symposium attendees. The artwork will be selected from work submitted in advance, instead of at the symposium, and will be available for viewing and bidding before and during the live auction at the AAW symposium in Phoenix. The Instant Gallery silent auction will continue as it has in the past.
The AAW is proud to announce the panel that will be making the selections: JoAnn Edwards, director of the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, owner of Tercera Galleries, and former board member of the Furniture Society; MaryAnn Hruska, Collectors of Wood Art (CWA) Lifetime Achievement award winner and former president of Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts’ board of directors; and Jane and Arthur Mason, CWA Lifetime Achievement award winners whose well-known collection is featured in the book and traveling exhibition, “Turning Wood Into Art.”
Applying to have a piece considered for the auction is free. Deadline for submissions is March 7, 2014. Watch woodturner.org/symposium for the link to apply.
