Description

The New Hampshire Furniture Masters invite the public to join them on Sunday, October 27th for a delightful evening of fine craftsmanship in Furniture Masterworks 2013: A Celebration. A departure from the Masters’ live auctions of years past, this event will offer attendees an engaging design experience in which they can interact with individual masters more intimately, experiencing their newest creations firsthand and speaking with the Masters in-depth if desired. This special evening takes place from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the surroundings of the historic Wentworth by the Sea Hotel and features works by 20 fine furniture makers. (Among the items on view will be John Cameron’s lovely piece ‘Neptune,’ pictured above.) The evening includes an elegant reception and the perennially popular Silent Auction. The ticket price has been reduced to $25 per person to make the evening more accessible; attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance through the Furniture Masters’ website, http://www.furnituremasters.org .

 

This year’s event is carefully crafted to allow attendees maximum interaction with both the furniture and the artists who create it. Special features of this year’s event include:

 

  • A full-size vignette that demonstrates how effortlessly the Furniture Masters’ works may be incorporated into a home or office environment. The vignette will include works by participants in the Furniture Masters’ Prison Outreach Program, paired with beautiful oriental rugs provided courtesy of Lead Sponsor Persian Rug Gallery.

 

  • A display by sponsor TMS architects of Portsmouth, New Hampshire illustrating their services and highlighting their restoration of the historic Wentworth property.

 

  • Our highly anticipated Silent Auction, featuring smaller, more modestly priced works by the Furniture Masters. All proceeds from the Silent Auction support the Furniture Masters’ educational initiatives, including their renowned Prison Outreach Program, which was recently expanded to the Maine prison system. Silent auction offerings include such pieces as this elegant little table by Ted Blachly.
