Hawaii: Wooden works of art to be showcased at Honolulu museum

The Honolulu Museum of Art School will feature 80 works of wood art at the Hawaii Woodshow

Intricate works of art made from native Hawaiian wood will be showcased in an upcoming exhibition in Honolulu.

Hawaii's Woodshow will run Aug. 31-Sept. 14 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School.

Each fall, the exhibit features 80 or more heirloom-quality pieces, from bowls to sculptures to tables. All must be crafted from Hawaiian-grown woods, such as kamani, koa, macadamia nut, mango and Norfolk pine.

The show’s sponsor, the Hawaii Forest Industry Assn., prohibits the use of rare or endangered species. For the past 25 years the nonprofit group has promoted sustainable forests throughout the islands.

The juried show includes categories for both amateurs and professionals.

"Each year, we are challenged to make Hawaii's Woodshow better than the year before, and each year, Hawaii's talented woodworkers deliver breathtaking works," Andy Cole, the show’s coordinator and an award-winning wood-turner, said in a news release.

The works will be on display 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day. The school is at 1111 Victoria St. in Honolulu. Admission is free.
