The show features the work of over eight local and Midwest artists and furniture makers, each masters in their respective fields if woodwork, ironwork and design.
Wisconsin artist, Edward Wohl, has designed and built exquisite custom furniture from select hardwoods from over 40 years. His signature line of bird's-eye maple cutting boards is available internationally through high-end galleries and specialty shops.
The show will also include the work of Matthew Nafranowicz, owner of The Straight Thread located right here on Madison’s east side. Matthew’s work focuses on custom-built upholstered furniture and restoration of contemporary, midcentury modern and antique pieces. The understated and matter-of-fact style of his work is rooted in the ideals of the upper Midwest.
