It Grows On Trees

Woodworking Competition and Exhibit of carvings and other wood art made from ash trees and other locally-salvaged timber.

Entries due by January 15, 2007

Sponsored by Riverside Art Center Gallery and Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation & Development Council

The exhibit and competition "presents creative uses for local and under-valued wood. Materials may include ash trees and other locally-salvaged timber; sticks, branches and sawmill waste; "junk wood" species like mulberry and box-elder, and lumber salvaged from pallets and shipping materials."

Please note this exhibit and competition is limited to makers and timber from Michigan and the Emerald Ash Borer-affected region.

For more information, click HERE or email michiganwoodart@gtlakes.com


Editors Note: As many of you know, ash tree populations in portions of Michigan and other states have been devastated by the Emerald Ash Borer, with millions of trees already destroyed and hundreds of tons of wood land-filled, chipped or burned. This competition is an attempt to find alternative uses for ash wood and other "found" wood.
