Reynolds Fine Art, a contemporary art gallery in New Haven, Conn., opened an exhibition of contemporary furniture design in August that runs through Sept. 28.
Gallery manager Daniel Bohman says all submitted works were considered by a vetting committee, which includes John Stuart Gordon, assistant curator in the Department of American Decorative Arts at the Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven; Mark Simon from Centerbrook Architects and Planners in Essex, Conn.; Sandra Vlock from Arbonies King Vlock Architects in Branford, Conn.; and artist and furniture designer Boris Bally, whose work currently resides in the furniture collection at the Yale University Art Gallery.
Castle in the Clouds exhibit
The New Hampshire Furniture Masters Association had work featured Aug. 18 at the Lucknow Estate, Castle in the Clouds, in Moultonborough, N.H. The one-day event gave the public the opportunity to speak with the guild’s members in a relaxed setting and examine their furniture pieces up close.
“The Castle event is one the Furniture Masters look forward to every year,” association chair Richard Oedel says. “The estate provides a stunning backdrop for our furniture, and the location is a perfect place for us to reconnect with fine furniture lovers from across the Lakes Region.”
Presenting masters included Aurelio Bolognesi of Hardwick, Mass.; Jeffrey Cooper of Portsmouth, N.H.; Bill Thomas of Rindge, N.H., and Boston’s Oedel; as well as invited artist Matt Wajda of Rollinsford, N.H., and emerging artists Greg Brown of Deerfield, N.H., and Bradley Wolcott of Charlestown, Mass.
