The Idaho Artistry in Wood and Gourd Show is presented by Idaho Artistry in Wood, a non-profit Idaho corporation. Idaho Artistry in Wood is a collaboration of five clubs: Treasure Valley Scrollers, Southwest Idaho Woodturners Association, Idaho Gourd Society, Idaho Woodcarvers Guild, and Ada County Woodworkers. The show is run by a committee composed of representatives from each club. Each year a different club chairs the committee. For 2020 the Treasure Valley Scrollers have the chair.
The Idaho Artistry in Wood and Gourd Show provides the opportunity for artists to participate in a judged competition and display their work to the public. The show features the judged competition, special displays, live demonstrators, sale of wood and gourd art objects, vendors, raffles, auctions, and a banquet — plus a special featured artist.
The 2020 show will be 21 March, 9:00am - 5:00pm, and 22 March, 10:00am - 4:00pm, at the JUMP building in Downtown Boise.
