Many of woodworker George Manns' projects begin with the theme and parameters of an artistic competition. The Wharton Esherick Museum Woodworker's Competition is a perennial favorite of his. George has entered and been accepted to the show regularly, though not consistently. (One thing we know for sure, is that it is not the quality of the images that keeps the projects from being accepted. A sincere thank you to VanZandbergen Photography for their excellent work!) Being accepted is wonderful, but it does not diminsh the satisfaction in the pieces that don't meet the judges' expectations. As an example, the vase, mirror, chair, and necklace shown here have all been submitted to the contest but only two of the four were accepted to the show. If you are curious which received a thumbs up, visit during this year's tour and judge for yourself. We'll tell you if the judges agreed.

There will also be examples of more traditional furniture and cabinetry--with a twist!--to see as well. As always, you are encouraged to sit in the chairs, open the drawers and pet the critters when you come. George looks forward to greeting old friends and making new ones. Visit the shop on Irish Hill Road, 5 miles from the Lawton end or 2 miles from the Friendsville side, during the tour or other times by appointment. Call 570-553-2729 for more information.
