Steel and Wood at Axel's Gallery and Frame Shop

5 Stowe St, Waterbury, VT 05676, USA
5 Stowe St, Waterbury, VT 05676, USA

The Underpass Cooperative comes to Axel’s Gallery this Fall to showcase collaborative furniture, lighting and other functional works made of steel and wood. While often used as the carrot to garner commissioned work, these on spec pieces allow each of the three craftsmen to envision work that is both improvisational and wrought with complete creative freedom. These pieces are decisively contemporary, while utilizing age-old craft traditions. Expect to see a blend of exquisite wood grain and bold yet simple steel forms making for delightfully durable objects that you will feel hard pressed not to live without.

Come meet the three craftsmen on Friday September 7th from 6-8pm at Axel’s Gallery. Take this opportunity to see how the collaboration of steel and wood make for an intimate and contemporary pair. This event is free and open to the public. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

Axel’s Gallery and Frame Shop is open Tuesday – Friday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturdays 10:00 – 4:00 pm. Images from work in the show attached.
