October 2007 - Far From the Tree

October 17, 2007 - Rockport, Maine:  This evening, our chapter was treated to a very special night at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship’s Messler Gallery. Rather than rewrite what their web site says so well, just click here for the full story about this exceptional assemblage of turnings from the acknowledged masters in our field. Member Jacques Vessery, one of the curators of the show, presented a detailed dissertation on why pieces were selected for the show, how that process works, and why this showing is important to us all.

Thanks to Jacques, his co-curator Kevin Wallace, and all the good folks at CFC who made this night possible for us.
