Australian Wood Design Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

26 Mar 2022 to 18 Jun 2022 Once Only Event

Exhibiting 26 March – 19 June 2022

The emphasis of the Australian Wood Design Exhibition is to promote a sustainable timber industry and the exhibition will only accept entries with 75 per cent Australian timbers that do not include any rare or endangered timber species, (with the exception of the Reuse, Recycle prize category). Prize money is generously donated by the Friends of Orbost Opportunity Shop, Elders Real Estate, (CARE) Concerned Artists Resisting Extinction and generous individuals, with volunteers providing the much needed work to organise and staff the exhibition. Judges are Australian timber artist Stephen Hughes and East Gippsland Art Gallery Director, Crystal Stubbs.

The Orbost Exhibition Centre retains an emphasis on sustainability and woodwork. Since 1997 the OEC has showcased the work of some of the finest woodworkers nationally, and has acquired a collection of acquisitions pieces from each show to make up the permanent collection on display at the OEC.

Entry deadline extended to 14 March 2022
