Opening Reception Friday Evening, August 5, 2016, 5-8 pm
Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona opens a new exhibition to showcase Sticks, the top-quality art furniture created by a unique group of talented and creative American artisans. The exhibition opens with a reception “1st Friday,” August 5th, from 5-8 pm.
Whether a Lazy Susan, a wall mirror, a bench, a set of nesting tables, a kitchen table with chairs or a tall game table with stools the array of Sticks art furniture represented at Lanning Gallery has always run the gamut. And custom work represents a large percentage of the gallery’s pieces as well. The rich colors and lively designs of a piece of Sticks art furniture are most always coupled with words or phrases that inspire heartfelt responses, and with custom pieces a client may choose their own favorite expressions, custom palettes and personal design elements. “It’s all about storytelling,” Sarah Grant notes, describing each piece Sticks creates.
The hand-crafted beauty of Sticks art furniture begins with finely crafted birch, poplar or driftwood; designs are hand drawn onto the wood; etched contouring and vibrantly blended paint along with impeccable leatherwork, when called for, rounds out each delightful piece. All paints and finishes used by Sticks are water-based and non-toxic and each is protected with a finish that allows them to be used as you would any piece of furniture. The rich colors available in several palette options and the designs that showcase the talents of the Sticks artisans make Sticks art furniture a true favorite. “These are happy pieces,” Gallery Owner Peggy Lanning notes; “they add so much character to a room and, to live with them, truly brightens your days.”
“Art Furniture by Sticks” opens to celebrate the engaging colors, fanciful designs and stellar hand-craftsmanship of every Sticks piece. Stop by Lanning Gallery to enjoy this newest exhibition which runs through August 14th.
