Stay in Touch: Seven Years of the John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship

Public Opening: Friday, September 25, 2015 | 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Established in 2009, The John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship awards $25,000 annually to a young-in-career furniture maker demonstrating a dedication to the craft. This year, the Society of Arts and Crafts brings together the past winners in a special exhibition that shows off each of the Fellows' work and growth since their award. The 2015 Fellow will join Will Tracey (2009), Libby Schrum (2010), Bart Niswonger (2011), Nick Hollibaugh (2012), Vivian Beer (2013), Kimberly Winkle (2014), and Sarah Marriage (2015) in an exhibition that demonstrates continued growth and excellence in furniture.
