Monthly featured Artist

Rick Cannon

Rick is a fulltime woodworker/artisan who strives to incorporate the influences of man and nature into his work.  A look through his album, and one will see that he has been successful on both counts.  His carving and use of color draw the eye in to explore the textures that he creates, and one can see the influence of the many turners that he cites in his bio.


 The WoW family is fortunate to have Rick as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor him as the Artist of the Month for January 2023.

The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at wowadmin@shaw.ca. Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message. The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, Inc and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
