There will NOT be another issue of The Canadian Woodturner unless members volunteer to serve on the executive and as Editor. As mentioned in recent issues, as well as in the latest issue, the members of the executive of the CWA have terminated their duties. So far no one has volunteered to produce the magazine or to hold any of the positions on the executive. Therefore, without an editor, there will be no upcoming issue of The Canadian Woodturner.
Wanted: an Editor for The Canadian Woodtuner

Wood Turning in North America Since 1930
This exhibition and Symposium will be at the Yale University Art Gallery,
in New Haven, Connecticut September 10th thru December 1, 2002
This session has been organized by the Wood
Turning Center and Yale University Art Gallery
Wood Turning Center
Wood turning is the cutting of wood as it spins
on a lathe. Seventy years ago, the craft of wood turning was rarely
practiced in the country (the USA) outside of high school shop classes,
factories, and the workshops of hobbyists. Today, turning is a sophisticated
art form that has attracted the attention of museums and collectors.
This exhibition www.woodturningcenter.org
traces this transformation and explains the emergence of the studio turner.
It includes many of the crucial objects that have led turners to breakthrough
to new technical and aesthetic directions. It also presents an historical
analysis of the field based on chronology and varying approaches.
This history shows that some wood turners have seen the use of the lathe
not as a limitation, but as a challenge that elicits reactivity, experiment,
and aesthetic accomplishment.
