My work was accepted into an exhibit at the Museum of Art and History (MAH) at the McPherson center in Downtown Santa Cruz, CA. It is in the “Furniture Design” exhibit on the third floor. I have two pieces there: SUMO Credenza and Stiletto Cabinet. The show started July 30 and runs until November 13, 2011 (sorry I didn’t mention it earlier).

Here are a couple of photos from the opening night:

-- Happy woodworking!
