The American Arts and Crafts Chair: “A Message of Honesty and Joy”
July 27, 2019 at 12:00 pm - March 1, 2020 at 4:00 pm
The exhibition will feature thirteen exemplary examples of side chairs by handicraft-oriented furniture manufacturers–among them Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman Workshops, the L&JG Stickley Company, the Charles P. Limbert Company–as well as smaller, craft-oriented workshops such as Charles Rohlfs, the Roycroft Shops, Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, and Rose Valley Association. The exhibition will explore the usefulness and appealing designs of these vital products of the American Arts and Crafts movement, and show how these chairs brought a message of honesty and joy to their makers and their possessors.
