Made in Massachusetts: Studio Furniture of the Bay State
When: October 12, 2013 - February 9, 2014 (Opening Reception Sunday, October 20, 1:00 – 5:00 pm, with a talk by Professor Brock Jobe, Winterthur Museum)
Where: Fuller Craft Museum, 455 Oak Street, Brockton, MA 02301
Details: Since the mid-1950s, Massachusetts has experienced a growing interest in furniture made by individual studio artists. Much of this flowering reflects new directions in crafts taking place in America. While some forms derived from colonial and traditional prototypes continued to dominate the field, such as custom bench work thriving in the North Bennet Street School, a new wave of stylistically innovative furniture styles emerged in the 1960s. With the exhibition Made in Massachusetts: Studio Furniture of the Bay State, Fuller Craft Museum will feature works by studio furniture artists working in Boston, as well as throughout Massachusetts. Their works represent rich and diverse contributions to the field of fine furniture making over the past 30 years.
This exhibition is a product of Four Centuries of Massachusetts Furniture, a collaborative project of Fuller Craft Museum and ten other institutions that features exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, and publications to celebrate the Bay State’s legacy of furniture-making.
