Tour: Laura Petrovich Cheney

Boston, Massachusetts

In all of Laura Petrovich Cheney's recent sculptures, a dialogue exists between environmental and individual concerns. Much of Laura's work is feminist in nature, incorporating traditional women's arts such as needlework and quilting, which are then transformed through found and re-purposed materials. Laura's dedication to her vision has been reflected in several shows, including the 2018 Memory and Material exhibit at the International Quilt Museum and What Remains at the Fuller Craft Museum in 2017. In October 2017 at Brooklyn's A.I.R. Gallery, Laura examined the political, social, and communal impacts of quilts in her curated exhibit Beyond the Bedcovers, a group show explored how quilting has evolved beyond its cozy functionality.

Alan Adler

Montvale, New Jersey

"Having studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute I founded two Package Design companies. After 30 years of making products for others it was time to return to my artist roots. I discovered WoodTurning in 2008 and became addicted to the process of peeling away layers of wood to create beautiful forms. In my Montvale, NJ studio my focus is on Bowls, Wood Art and Jewelry." — Alan Adler

Katie Hudnall

Indianapolis, Indiana

Katie Hudnall doesn't make traditional furniture informed by centuries of traditional joinery: her exuberant and wondrous pieces are put together with cold fittings and made from recycled wood. They are ingenious contraptions, the place where Rube Goldberg meets the falling-down barn in a wheat field. View Katie's work in the Center's Collection »
