Masters at Work: Woodturning Competition

Masters at Work: Woodturning Competition & Exhibit


Visitors to the Forest Heritage Center Museum, located in Beavers Bend State Park, are in for a treat during the Masters at Work Containers for Courage competition on September 13 - 15, 2019.  This year’s event will feature five artists, all women for the first time in the event’s history, competing in four competitions on Friday and Saturday. Guests will have the opportunity for a close-up view of wood art being created from start to finish by these woodturning Masters.

Artists and museum guests will gather on Sunday for an awards presentation during the exhibit’s official opening. In addition to the pieces created during the two days of competitions the gallery will feature Containers for Courage. These lidded containers are designed to hold priceless treasures, thousands of tiny glass beads that tell the stories of the young cancer patients who participate in the Beads of Courage program.

The Masters at Work competition and exhibit are free to the public. For more information call the Forest Heritage Center Museum at 580-494-6497 or email [email protected]. This event is made possible through the Oklahoma Arts Council, Oklahoma Forestry Services and Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department.
