Exploring the interface of art and interior design, Venusian Gardens presents an exhibition of work by local artists focusing on functional elements of living and working environments. This show brings together a divergent range of styles by four individuals working with a variety of materials.
In his inaugural exhibition, Chad Anderson presents a collection of tables and dressers that reflect his craftmanship with aluminum and unusual painted finishes. Coupling his personal techniques of applied finishes with his own stylized designs, Anderson provides a fresh, new line of furniture that is both beautiful and enduring.
William Jordan, a master craftsman with more than forty years of experience working in exotic woods, combines his exquisite use of traditional joinery techniques with an elegant sense of contemporary design to produce true masterpieces of handmade furniture.
Incorporating automotive and other non-traditional elements in a most unusual style, John Wilhite's tables are endearing and whimsical while still retaining a sense of formality and function.
Eric Ehlenberger, better known for his abstract neon, glass and metal sculpture, turns his imagination in a new direction with his latest effort - a functional table that incorporates a small, removable and interchangeable Venusian Garden as a unique centerpiece. Also for this exhibition, Ehlenberger has further developed his latest IIIrd Millenium design series, the neo-Antique sconces, with a new collection of wall sconces incorporating antique glass and neon.
At Venusian Gardens we are excited about this new exhibition, our first to focus on elements of interior design. The artists represented in this show have put together a collection of work we are proud to present to the public for inspiration and sale.
