Exhibition  

Made in Massachusetts: Studio Furniture of the Bay State


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.
