According to the Whidbey Island Woodworkers Guild: "Most furniture and wood-art made today is mass-produced and often designed/built for low cost, short-term use (throw away). Woodpalooza presents an alternative that involves the talents of master craftsmen/women who make their living creating pieces that will beautifully endure for generations.
The exhibition is intended to simultaneously educate and inspire. Further, we hope that these examples of creativity will inspire others (especially the next-generation) to aspire to consider joining us as a career. The Guild invites everyone to come and experience the numerous types of woods in a wide variety of forms while rubbing shoulders with the artisans who carry on one of our oldest and most endearing professions."
