Wood Objects is a juried woodwork exhibition in the Ottawa area, held at the Ottawa Home and Garden Show from March 24-27, 2011. The exhibition comes under the auspices of the Ottawa Woodworkers Association, a not-for-profit organization that meets monthly to learn about, share and promote woodworking. This event has as three cornerstone objectives: to foster excellence in the design and crafting of wood objects, to create an opportunity for the public to experience finely crafted objects and to encourage aspiring artisans. The juried aspect of the exhibition serves to encourage woodworkers to work to the highest standards that they are able. This juried exhibition features works predominantly of wood with importance given to strong design elements, excellence in workmanship and diversity of approach.
