The AAW provides a venue for woodturners and wood art collectors to come together. There are three venues available on the AAW website:
- Artists/Gallery Market Place – This is where woodturners can list their work for sale. You must be an AAW member and pay a $10 fee to list your item, but there are no requirements to view the items that are listed for sale. There is a wide variety of work including pieces by Rodney Peterson, John Beaver, Cindy Drozda, Binh Pho, Curt Theobald, Bob Stocksdale, Malcolm Tibbetts, Stuart Mortimer, Ralph Watts and many others. There is an amazing collection of art available here.
- Collector/Museum Corner – This is a secondary market for wood art for collectors, museums and estates who want to sell or barter their pieces. You must be an AAW member and pay a $10 fee to list your item, but there are no requirements to view the items that are listed for sale. Currently there are pieces offered by Mel Lindquist, Bert Marsh, Ed Moulthrop, Dale Chase, William Hunter, Bob Stocksdale and David Ellsworth.
- Collector/Museum Wish List – This is for collectors, galleries and museums to list wood art they wish to acquire either new or through a secondary market. Membership in the AAW is required, but there is no fee. There are currently three listings in this venue
These venues offer AAW members a powerful tool to help market their woodturnings. The AAW website receives over 40,000,000 hits every year, and has 62,119 other websites that link to theirs, so $10 is very reasonable and the exposure could help with your other marketing efforts.
