Jim Rose - New Structures

December 1 – 29

Primarily working with steel found in scrap yards across the Midwest, Jim Rose employs furniture-making techniques to create beautiful Shaker design and Gee's Bend quilt influenced work. The Gee's Bend quilts, known for their pattern and narrative qualities, were made by women in Gee's Bend, Alabama, beginning in the early 20th century. Unique to Rose is his sensitivities to boundaries between fine art and craft, resulting in striking structures and furniture that is both utilitarian and artistic.
