Ten artists’ wildly divergent transformations of chairs wow’ed the crowd at the September 27th, 2013 opening of an Art Chair exhibit at The Frame Garden Gallery. From Olivia Lossett’s oak ‘Double X’s’ to Rosie Wynkoop’s ‘Crown Jewel’, the re-made seats are an expression of each artist’s individual interpretation of their chosen raw material.
The challenge for the show was to breathe new life into an old chair (or concept of a chair) of one’s choosing. Each piece at the gallery is displayed with a ‘before’ photograph which illustrates the wide gap that the artists were challenged to fill with their creativity – and nicely demonstrating the essence of ‘Up-cycle’.
This show took place in October, 2013 – curated by Carla Pyle and Traci Isaly. If you are in Livingston, Montana looking for an entertaining art experience, check out The Frame Garden Gallery.
