On Display in the Kimball Jenkins Mansion, September 9 – October 25
Explore the results of a summer-long collaboration between members of the NH Furniture Masters and selected artists and faculty from Kimball Jenkins as part of the NH Furniture Masters’ Annual Exhibition.
14 Furniture Masters have been paired with 28 artists to participate in a three-month artistic journey, visiting each other’s studios and learning about one another’s craft. This multi-media exhibition will feature a wide selection of works, from fine furniture to paintings, photographs, and poems, all inspired by the partners’ artistic relationship and time spent together.
This collaboration provides a unique opportunity to deepen the network and relationship of artists across New Hampshire and develop new relationships across mediums.
