Tamarack and the Tamarack Foundation have played important roles in exposing my woodturning skills and turned pieces to the public. My work has been displayed and sold at Tamarack and the Foundation has provided a wonderful opportunity to expose my art to the public at FestivALL in Charleston. Through FestivALL, my sales increased and I had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other artisans supported by the Foundation. As a juror for the Foundation, I have met many artisans from the wood catagory and have seen their skills refined and work improve as they present their pieces to be accepted for sale at Tamarack. I have nothing but positive comments and support of the Tamarack Foundation for the help they have given many artisans which enabled them to establish and/or improve their art businesses through grants and marketing advise.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
sincere in their efforts to expand, improve, and expose the arts and crafts of West Virginia artisans.
