Double Take in Wood
In 2017, Manningham Art Gallery is proud to host the Victorian Woodworkers Association’s annual exhibition of makers and designers from across Australia.
The exhibition comprises two parts. The first, ‘Create from a Crate’, sets the challenge to members to transform timber from disused, post-industrial timber packaging into new and beautiful objects, thereby promoting both recycling and the aesthetic potential of different timber types.
The second part showcases a selection of fine woodwork that celebrates the pairing of age-old and contemporary techniques and designs that reveal the delicateness, malleability and warmth of timber as a material.
As a whole, the exhibition is a display of the skilled craftmanship of the artists involved, their ability to imagine and design new objects either from the scraps of the old or the finest timbers and the amazing potential of a material that has been worked by humanity for aeons.
