The 2024 SouthWest Florida Wood Art Expo
PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA January 12 & 13, 2024 Charlotte Harbor Event Center

Every year, we are proud to host the Southwest Florida Wood Art Expo and Competition, featuring woodcarving and woodturning! This is a collaborative effort between the Peace River Woodturners and the SWFL Woodcarvers.

The Expo will be held January 12 & 13, 2024, in the Charlotte Harbor Exhibition and Conference Center on the shores of the Peace River in Punta Gorda, Florida. Entrants compete for cash prizes and awards like Best of Show, President's Choice, People's Choice, along with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in their respective skill levels and categories.

Carving Categories include 3D scenes & still-life, lifelike animals, caricature & montage, etchings, flatwork, holiday displays, impressionistic depictions, and miniaturized realism and detail. Woodturning categories include bowls & platter (some embellished with carving), open & closed segmented vessels, miniatures, multi-media & cast elements, utility & kitchen items, and artistic exploration in forms.

This 2-day Expo also host live demonstrations in both wood carving and wood turning, presented by local artists and professional demonstrators. The event is anchored by the Vendor Display and Sales area, showcasing tools of the trades, supplies, and fabulous displays by local artisans and local Wood Club Members.

Our Southwest Florida Woodcarvers organization, with assistance from local carving and turning clubs, provide education and instruction for our SW Florida neighbors. Many of these small Clubs meet in community activity rooms, public and private spaces, and even in Member's garages & workshops. Woodworking is an activity that can be enjoyed and shared by all ages, and Members always look forward to this annual sharing opportunity with like-minded artisans!
