Since 2007, the Professional Outreach Program (POP) of the American Association of Woodturners has sponsored invitational exhibitions of small scale works. The annual exhibitions bring together works by professional studio turners from many countries. The theme for 2016 is Patterns. 

For 2016 the POP committee is accepting a limited number of juried pieces. As always, the creative interpretation of the theme is up to the artist, but the work must meet the size requirements and be created for this exhibition. 

All pieces will be offered in a simultaneous live and online auction scheduled for June 11, 2016. Artists may retain up to 50% of the auction price, or take a lower percentage to help support POP initiatives, including grants, fellowships, awards, and panel discussions. Artists may set a reserve if desired. 

Prior to the AAW Symposium, the show will be displayed at the AAW Gallery of Wood Art in St. Paul, Minnesota from March 6 to May 23, 2015. All pieces will be professionally photographed for the online auction and included in a print catalog; participating artists receive complimentary copies.
