« Part 1: Works in Wood Part 2 of Exhibits/Talks/Demos series Part 3: Lie-Nielson Tool Event »

I am a co-chair for the Members Gallery at this year’s Furniture Society Conference. All Furniture Society members are invited to submit to the Members Gallery. Design, Community & Sublime Conference will be held at Maine College of Art from June 14-16,2012 in Portland Maine.

The exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to show one’s work to your peers and other conference attendees. We encourage all Society members to participate.

There is no fee to submit to Members Gallery, inclusion is open to all Furniture Society members registered for the conference.

Gallery space is limited, acceptance will be allotted on a first come, first served basis. There is no size restraint, but in consideration of other members it is suggested you consider smaller pieces that are available to show.

Exhibited work will be labeled as available or not for sale (NFS). Please determine the sale price at the time of
application. The Furniture Society will be due a commission of 25% of the sale price as a result of any sale resulting from the Members Gallery exhibition.

We look forward to displaying your work in Furniture Society Members Gallery at the conference.

I get the emails as a member to the Furniture Society. I would love to get to one of the conferences but I do not see it happening this year. It would be great to hook up with some solid artists such as yourself.

I am showing closer to home this year at the Museum of the Rockies though. It will be a lot less expensive for travel since it is only a couple of hours away.

Hi Todd, maybe next year, would be great to meet you in person. I am taking the day off to rock climb, too beautiful to pass it up.

I didn’t realize you climb too your photos are great, Montana looks like great climbing. I usually climb at the Gunks or Peterskill in NY state, occasionally in New Hampshire mountains. We took a trip to Yosemite several years ago did some hiking & climbing.

I may take my gear up to Maine when Marie & I go up to Furniture Society conference, maybe do a day when conference is over.

I don’t have very many climbing photos since I use to solo everything & nobody was around to take photos. Maybe was not very smart but I have had some amazing adventures.

The image where I am face climbing my wife took the photo. The last 2 were self-portraits on a tripod with Granite Peak in the background and then on the summit.

Granite Peak is Montana’s highest point (12,800ft) and the most difficult of the lower 48 high points to climb. It is reported to be the most attempted & failed high point. A lot of it has to do with the difficult trek in wears a lot of people out, and the weather stops a lot of climbers. I have been caught in full-blown snow storms while climbing in August – twice.

To challenge myself a little more I started doing more of the climbing on the steeper north face (seen in the middle photo) as opposed to the popular trail on the other side of the ridge.
