The AAW Symposium being held this month in St. Paul, Minnesota, looks to be an amazing event. If you are planning on attending you may want to download the Symposium Planning Guide. And if you are unable to attend, the planning guide looks like a great overview of what is planned.
A quick look at the guide shows that there are 78 demonstrators and panelists, including some who have demonstrated at SPSW meetings. There are four exhibits including a retrospective on David Ellsworth’s turning career and items from the AAW Permanent Collection. There will be eight galleries, including an instant gallery, the Chapter Collaborative Challenge, and emerging artists. There is a banquet Saturday night and a trade show throughout the weekend.
There are also gatherings of the virtual chapters – Ornamental Turners International, Segmented Woodturners and Principally Pens.
You can download either a low-res version or a high-res version from the AAW Website.
