The 2017 edition of the Dayton Artistry in Wood show was hosted at the Roberts Centre, Wilmington, OH the second weekend of October.
Even though Artistry in Wood Show has a new home, in the second year at the Roberts Centre, exhibitors and visitors alike experienced the feeling of being “Home Again.” Artistry in Wood “just feels right” once again as it continues its legacy of being one of the premier woodcarving and woodworking show in the United States. The Home Again feeling was experienced in the friendly atmosphere of friend meeting friend as if for the first time or as longtime friends reunited. There was a “family” feeling while sharing one another’s joys, sharing a common concern for health needs and comfort for those sorrowing. Home Again was experienced in the Saturday night banquet with delicious food, refreshing conversation and relaxing atmosphere in the banquet set up in the well-appointed lobby of the Holiday Inn.
