Woodworkers’ Expo to Continue on St. John

A small selection of Avelino Samuels' collection, above, is on display at the fifth annual Virgin Islands’ Woodworkers’ Expo, held Dec. 3-5 on UVI’s St. Thomas campus. Also pictured is a mirror by Bernard Jones. The Expo features the work of members of the St. Thomas/St. John Woodworkers Society and the St. Croix Wood Artists, Inc.

The Expo continues on St. John at the Market Place, from Dec. 10 to 12. It will open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The Woodworkers’ Expo is the ideal place to purchase holiday gifts. The Woodworkers’ Expo is sponsored by the UVI Cooperative Extension Service in partnership with the V.I. Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, the V.I. Department of Tourism, and the West Indian Company, Ltd.
