NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Individual Artist Fellowship Award winners Sophie Glenn and Lydia Johnson are featured in a joint exhibition entitled “Crafting Contemporary Furniture and Ceramics” on display now through March 9 at the Tennessee Arts Commission Gallery.
Their spin on contemporary design exemplifies the innovative work being created in Tennessee.
Johnson’s ceramic functional forms are ornamented in complex and vibrant patterns. While the patterns are based on historical references, such as American folk quilts and arts and crafts wallpaper patterns, the contemporary color palette makes for a fresh reinterpretation of the past.
Glenn’s angular and minimal furniture designs seem to defy gravity and trick the eye. Her merging of traditional furniture materials and techniques with contemporary designs makes for furniture that liven current living spaces.
The exhibit is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST Monday to Friday. The TN Arts Commission Gallery is located at 401 Charlotte Avenue, Nashville 37243.
