Women Make a Seat for Themselves at Philadelphia Woodworking Exhibit
To coincide with the centenary of women’s suffrage, the Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia is presenting “Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking,” from October 4 to January 18. The 43 female artists range from the established—designer and RISD president Rosanne Somerson among them—to the emerging, and their work showcases traditional techniques alongside those more technological. Laura Kishimoto, for example, employed freeform vacuum-bag laminating for her circular Yumi Chair II. Annie Evelyn steam-bent the spindles holding real blossoms in her Windsor Flower Chair. But Katie Hudnall cites dumpster diving as the process behind her reclaimed-wood Spirits Cabinet.
