Maine furniture maker Peter Turner, who made this wall shelf, has entered the Maine Wood competition in previous years.
The Messler Gallery at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine has put out a call for entries for Maine Wood 2012. It’s a juried exhibit to be held at the gallery. This is a great opportunity to show your work to a wider audience. However, there is one little catch (at least it is for most people). Only pieces that were made in Maine–and primarily from wood–will be accepted into the show. For a complete list of eligibility requirements check out the application.
By the way, we keep an running list of exhibits, competitions, and the like. A note: we list only those events that are sent to us. So, if you are hosting or sponsoring an event, drop us an email: email@example.com.
Here’s the official press release:

The submission deadline is July 15, 2011. More information is available at: www.woodschool.org or by calling (207) 594-5611.
