I am pleased to announce “Antigua” was selected by the jury to be included in the American Association of Woodturners – Spirit of the Southwest exhibition. The show will premiere in Albuquerque during the annual AAW symposium and then travel to various galleries across the US and end up at the AAW gallery in St. Paul, MN. “Antigua” was one of thirty pieces selected.

”The works selected exemplify sound technical skills and reflect the aesthetic capabilities of the artists whose creations will make this a memorable and outstanding exhibition. We are pleased by the diversity of styles, materials and techniques this exhibit will showcase, and how the work reflects the scope of contemporary woodturning.” -AAW

I am truly honored and humbled to be included in such an elite exhibition.

Joe Landon

congratulations Joe…. It is an awesome piece. With only your pieces, you could probably create your own show/gallery.

CONGRATULATIONS! Your talent will be enjoyed by many (and in person)! I know you will do well in your art. You have many great opportunities in front of you. Enjoy the journey.

I’d love to know where the tour is scheduled, as just maybe I’ll get to attend a showing.

After reviewing your Gallery, I am curious as to how you managed to select this particular turning. Your works have evolved greatly since your introduction to turning and every piece shows that you are pushing yourself to create new ideas and emotions in your work.

So, I’m asking: “How did you decide to enter this piece, selected among all of your wonderful works?”

Joe, I can’t think of anyone who has developed so quickly in a specific area of woodworking as you have with your turnings. This is recognition that is more than very well deserved.


I think it would be pretty cool if you could post on LJ the dates and cities it will be displayed in…That way any LJ’s in the area who have the desire could see it first hand.

Thanks for letting us know.
