FORMS & SURFACES:

Studio Furniture, part 2
the second in a series of exhibitions intended to provide an introduction to the wide variety of forms, materials, techniques, and inspirations present in our field. Its mission is to educate the viewer to the wide range of possibilities that Studio Furniture presents; the practical, useful yet sculptural object that, properly cared for, may serve generations. Steel, bronze, various woods, concrete, and glass... geometric, organic, and whimsical... more than a dozen works by artisans Christopher Martin (IA), David Orth (IL), Jenna Goldberg (RI), Bishoff/Syron (MA), Mark Del Guidice (MA), Cameron P. Van Dyke (MI), Isaac Arms (WI), Brent Skidmore (MI), Chris Bowman (IN), Maxwell Davis (MI), Richard Bennett (MI), Ed Pennebaker (AZ), and others will be featured.
Several of the artists included will be simultaneously featured in “Cut it Out”, and exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum in Boston, MA. Other included artists have work traveling with the Furniture Society’s “CURV-ITURE 2004” exhibition; currently at the Hickory Museum of Art in North Carolina.

The truest expression of what is loosely termed "functional art",
Studio Furniture refers to limited edition or one of a kind furnishings handcrafted in an artisan's studio. This installment in the series is concerned with unusual forms and surface treatments / materials, including polymer clay veneers, rubber, reclaimed steel and more.

A series of gallery talks by participating artists is currently being scheduled; visit our website for confirmed dates.
