OneOak Art in Action press release

Our first of three major exhibitions during 2012 will be on show at Art in Action from 19-22 July.

This is the first complete exhibition at which every aspect of the OneOak project, including all the many dozens of wood items made from the OneOak tree, will be brought together. They will be on display alongside our many works of art and stories of the science and people involved in the full life story of the OneOak tree.

The Woodwork marquee is being taken over completely by the OneOak project. Sylva’s main stand will be manned by our staff who will be on hand to talk with the public and we will be showing the many films made in the project, selling works of art, and we will be joined by the artists, musicians and makers who will be talking and demonstrating their craft. Also in the marquee will be 12 OneOak demonstrators, including many of Britain’s best designer makers.

Art in Action showcases the best of British art and where, as its name suggests, the artists demonstrate their skills in front of the public. It is held at Waterperry in Oxfordshire (map).

He will still be working on the carving when he joins us at Art in Action in July (read more). […]
