The Cabinet Maker/Designer: An Exhibition

August 4 – September 27, 1982

Maltwood Art Gallery

This collection, the work of 22 Vancouver Island craftspersons, reintroduces hand-crafted custom furnishings as an art form in its own right. All the pieces represent, with varying degrees of emphasis, the search of the craftsperson for a good aesthetic solution based on a personal judgement to resolve issues of function, comfort, cost of production and materials technology within the expectations of a clientele. As such this group stand typically within one of the two streams of contemporary furniture design; Modern design and English vernacular design.
