The Hawai'i Forest Industry Association announced that Hawaii's Woodshow, Na L?'au o Hawai'i, is scheduled for Sept. 1-15 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School at Linekona.

The show was previously held in April.

"We want to let interested wood artists know of the change in date and encourage them to enter," association executive director Heather Simmons said in a statement. "We hope the additional time will allow them to create fabulous pieces for the exhibition."

Hawaii's Woodshow is a juried exhibition. Entries from highly-refined calabashes to stunning furnishings and sculptures showcasing the versatility and beauty of Hawai'i woods are submitted in award categories including furniture, woodturning, sculpture and musical instruments. There is a special student division for ages 18 and under. The exhibition typically features 90 or more heirloom-quality works made from Acacia koa, mango, kamani, milo, Norfolk pine, macadamia nut, kiawe and other Hawaii-grown woods.
