June 16 – September 6, 2023
“New Work by Faculty,” an exhibition of contemporary wood furniture, furnishings, turnings, sculpture, and stringed instruments has opened for the summer at the Messler Gallery of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport. The show runs through September 6, 2023 and visitors are welcome.
All 24 makers represented in the exhibition are current-year instructors at the Center. They come from as far away as New Zealand and Wales, and as close by as Camden and Rockland, Maine.
This exhibition, in the year of our 30th anniversary, highlights one of the school’s great strengths, which is the professional accomplishment of its instructors. Their collective expertise in design and fabrication is a major reason why the school’s educational programs are so effective and successful.
Exhibitors include Dixie Biggs (Gainesville, FL), John Bryan (North Yarmouth, ME), Erik Curtis (Philadelphia, PA), Heidi Earnshaw (Lanark, ON), Adrian Ferrazzutti (Guelph, ON), Mark Gardner (Saluda, NC), Garrett Hack (Thetford Center, VT), David Haig (Nelson, New Zealand), Melanie Hamilton (Rothesay, NB), Reed Hansuld (Brooklyn, NY), Rob Hiza (Rockland, ME), Thomas Hucker (Jersey City, NJ), Larissa Huff (Philadelphia, PA), Beth Ireland (St. Petersburg, FL), Yuri Kobayashi (Rockland, ME), Peter Korn (Rockland, ME), James Macdonald (Burnham, ME), Matt Monaco (Springfield, MO), Erica Moody (Waldoboro, ME), Malcolm Ray (Damariscotta, ME), Tim Rousseau (Rockport, ME), Libby Schrum (Camden, ME), and Chelsea Witt (Cinnaminson, NJ).
