Show Time

There's a show called "Out Of The Woods" opening Saturday at The Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, Vermont. It will feature the works of 11 New England furniture makers included myself and fellow locals Bill Laberge and Steve Holman. The show has been a long time in the making and for a change we were one of the first to drop off our pieces so I'll be seeing all but one or two pieces for the first time myself on Saturday. There's a 'meet the artists' reception from 4 to 6 and their openings are always fine events. Happening at the same time will also be the opening celebration for the 81st Annual Members Exhibition, a sure to be interesting display of the members's fine art and sculpture work. Come by if you can ... Click the pictures to enlarge them ...

We'll be showing one of our Bethlehem Steel series pieces, a walnut and steel table and six complementary walnut chairs.

There is also a very cool building on the site designed by the award wining architect, Hugh Newell Jacobson.
