Much like the grass–roots effort of Fall 1997 that produced OUT OF FOCUS, turners’ first Internet salon de refuse, PATHWAYS was an independent venture. It received support from a variety of private and public sources, and suggests the potential of what can be accomplished by a few dedicated individuals with vision and enthusiasm. For the first time, practitioners were offered an exhibition opportunity with distinct categories which acknowledged the variety of attitudes and avenues within the field. Sculpture was recognized as having distinct and separate intentions from other work which addressed utility, scale, material, or the major vessel types. The Peaseware component of the exhibition presented a portion of the field’s past in the belief that history helps to nurture contemporary investigations; an attitude that was integral to the American Association of Woodturner’s 1997 TURNED FOR USE exhibition, and is very much a part of the Wood Turning Center’s mission. This catalog continued the interest in documentation via the affordable black/white format which was established by the two previous AAW exhibitions while it raised the standards for size and presentation quality and adds a distinctive color component.
