“Current Student Work” showcases furniture and decorative pieces created by the talented participants in the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship’s current Nine-Month Comprehensive program. The thirteen students, who began the course last September, come from a wide range of occupations including (but not limited to) an NCAA swimmer, a former Buddhist monk, a veteran, and an author. What they all share is the aspiration to make fine furniture. Most plan to establish professional workshops, while others are simply cultivating a lifelong passion. For many, this exhibition is the first opportunity to see their work in a professional setting. Asked for his thoughts, the course’s Lead Instructor, Aled Lewis said, "The work is a refreshing mix of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship, and it shows an abundance of talent!”.
“Current Student Work” exhibitors include Gene Bedell, Nicholas Doremus, Mat Driscoll, William Ellen, Dirk Giesberger, Adam Glogowski, Greg Horvitz, Kevin Hurley, Michael Little, Stephen Moles, Cyril Montoya, Michelle Myers, and Lance Smith.
