June 10 - September 14, 2016
“New Work by Faculty,” an exhibition of furniture, turned objects, carving, and sculpture in wood, has opened for the summer at the Messler Gallery of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport. The exhibition runs through September 14th, 2016.
All 29 makers represented in the exhibition are current-year instructors at the Center. They come from as far away as England and Wales, and as close by as Camden and Rockland, Maine. Their work is stylistically diverse, as befits a school whose teaching philosophy encourages each student to find his or her own creative voice.
International exhibitors in “New Work by Faculty” include: Adrian Ferrazzutti (Canada), Aled Lewis (Wales), and Chris Pye (England). Exhibitors from across the U.S.A. include: Dixie Biggs (Gainsville, FL), Elia Bizzarri (Hilsboro, NC), Jim Christiansen (Moscow, ID), Chance Coalter (San Diego, CA), Asher Rodriguez-Dunn (Rumford, RI), Ray Finan (Arlington, VT), Garrett Hack (Thetford Center, VT), Reed Hansuld (Brooklyn, NY), Stephen Hatcher (Olympia, WA), Beth Ireland (Roslindale, MA), Clark Kellogg (Houston, TX), Yuri Kobayashi (Westport Point, MA), Mary May (Johns Island, SC), Jim Sannerud (Saint Paul, MN), Peter Shepard (Harvard, MA), Kagen Sound (Denver, CO) and Rich Tannen (Bloomfield, NY). Participants from Maine include: Stephen Gleasner (Appleton), Jim Macdonald (Burnham), Mac Ray (Damariscotta), Brian Reid (Rockland), Kevin Rodel (Brunswick), Adam Rogers (Auburn), and Tim Rousseau (Appleton).
