In Conversation: Inspired Furniture Then and Now explores the legacy of furniture making in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee. This exhibition features work by contemporary furniture makers in tandem with historical pieces from the region. Placing these pieces together opens the door for conversations about traditional process and stylistic form present in furniture made along the Great Road and how those techniques persist and are altered today.
This exhibition is organized by William King Museum of Art.
