Saturday, March 27 is the opening date for Hawaii’s Woodshow, the 18th annual statewide Juried Woodworking Show of the Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association (HFIA). The show, which will run through Sunday, April 11, will be at the Honolulu Academy of Arts Academy Art Center.

The show brings Hawaii’s best woodworkers from every island together under one roof so people can see and appreciate their amazing work.  It’s an opportunity to see Hawaii’s diverse range of woods crafted into remarkable heirloom-quality works made from Koa, Mango, Kamani, Milo, Norfolk pine, macadamia nut, Kiawe and other Hawai‘i-grown hardwoods.

Hawaii’s Woodshow helps promote art and furniture from Hawai‘i-grown woods while also providing a platform to promote sustainable forest practices.  Only Hawaiian-grown wood works of art are displayed in Hawaii’s Woodshow. By restricting the type of product used, the show encourages artists to use local sustainable forest products that have been planted and brought to full growth here in Hawai‘i. Several rare and endemic Hawaiian species are prohibited as their use would be contrary to the spirit of the show, which encourages the use of under utilized and/or more readily available locally-grown species. Hawaii’s Woodshow is designed to strengthen Hawaii’s appreciation for the artists’ work and encourage sustainable forestry through the planting of native and non-native trees.

Hawaii’s Woodshow opens to the public Saturday, March 27 and runs through Sunday, April 11.

Doors open from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays.

There is no charge for admission but donations will be accepted at the door to help HFIA in its efforts to protect Hawaii’s forest lands.
