RRCC Fine Woodworking program presents Out of the Woods
Event will showcase original student and faculty works

LAKEWOOD, CO – Red Rocks Community College’s Fine Woodworking program and Collectors Specialty Woods presents Out of the Woods, a juried exhibit of original wood furniture, art works, and musical instruments at the CS Woods showroom, 4355 Monaco Street in Denver. Out of the Woods opening reception will be Saturday, December 13, 2014 from noon to 4:30 p.m. The showcase will remain open Wednesday through Saturday, December 17–20, from noon to 4:30 daily. The showcase is open to the public with free admission. 
“We are one of the top three fine woodworking schools in the country,” said program co-chair Jeremy Cox. “Every semester our students and faculty create innovative and beautifully finished pieces; we’d like to introduce the community to this rich resource of talent and training while exposing collectors and professional woodworkers to the concept of wood furniture as art.” Cox will give a luncheon talk about the studio furniture movement and wood artwork on December 17. 

CS Woods owner and founder Kent Mace explained, “CS Woods is a unique wood source used by professional designers and woodworkers nationwide. When we added our Denver showroom in 2012, we started attracting Red Rocks Fine Woodworking students and faculty.  They produce amazing works.”

Out of the Woods will feature more than 100 works by students and faculty. This will include one-of-a-kind, finely crafted tables, chairs, cabinets, wind instruments, and artworks that are turned, veneered and carved.  In addition, it will display unique woodworking benches designed for and by RRCC craftspeople.
