Take a Seat: The Chair Show
 
We all have them- they live in our homes, offices, on the porch, and at the beach.

We here at Featherstone are excited to announce our second art show of 2015:

Take a Seat: The Chair Show

Chariot by Rick Brown

So many of us on island use repurposed materials and structures to create warm comfortable spaces. We want to see how you the artist can find inspiration in the daily often over looked object: “The Chair”. Whether it’s painting, drawing, sculpting, woodworking, welding, reupholstering or using unconventional materials, we encourage all artists to think outside the box. Don’t be shy! Let’s create our own usable, or non usable chair, to plant our bodies or merely for decoration.

  • Up to three “chairs” per artists
  • All mediums welcome.
  • Artwork must be gallery ready - dry, framed, ready to hang (with wire), or ready for display

Drop off: Thursday, March 12th 10am - 4pm

Opening Reception: 
Sunday, March 15th 4pm - 6pm
Open Daily from 12pm-4pm through Wednesday April 8th


April 12 - May 6: 
Oceans Wilderness
with Guest Curator: Marianne Goldberg 
of Pathways Projects Institute
