Bartram's Boxes Remix Final Stop at Fuller Craft Museum, January 21st-April 16th

I was delighted to be a part of this lovely, traveling exhibition featuring a number of remarkable artists.  I collaborated with Amy Forsyth - we sent each other "seeds" of inspiration and each built a cabinet addressing our responses to the other's lovely, small, three dimensional sketches.  Be sure to visit the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA and check out all of the remarkable work.  Can't make it?  The folks at the Center for Art in Wood put together a wonderful catalog.  You can buy a copy here:  https://centerforartinwood.org/product/bartrams-boxes-remix/  If you want to know more about the Fuller Craft Museum or the Bartram's exhibition, follow this link:  Fuller Craft Museum.    

Furniture Society Conference, June 23-25

My fellow Windgate ITE Residents and I will be giving a presentation at this year's Furniture Society Conference (full disclosure, I'm on the Board of Trustees for the FS, but this marvelous plan was cooked up and implemented by one of the other residents).  The presentation takes place on Thursday, June 23rd, from 4 - 5pm and is called, "Seven at the Center: the 2016 ITE Windgate Residents Collaboration Laboratory Presentation."  

If you're in Philadelphia and interested in furniture, art, incredible makers and thinkers who love sharing their work with others AND know how to have a good time, I recommend checking out the whole conference schedule - it's not too late to register!  Go to http://furnsoc.org/inspiration/annual-conferences/fs16/ for more information, and maybe I'll see you there.
