Against the Grain: Wood Art from the Figge Collection


In the Lewis Gallery, a selection of works from the Figge collection will showcase artists who have been inspired by the unique qualities of wood. Artists will include Steve Sinner, Lane Phillips, Galan Carpenter, Harvey Fein and Michael Mode.

The installation also will feature several recent acquisitions, including Michael Peterson’s New Terrain (2008), made possible through the generosity of the Windgate Charitable Foundation.


This exhibition is on view August 30, 2014-January 25, 2015.
