Formed From Nature: Early Twig Furniture by Regional 20th-Century ArtistsJanuary 26, 2007 - July 08, 2007
Price-Strongwell Cultural Heritage Galleries
This exhibition will explore twig furniture made in the Appalachian mountains of Southwest Virginia, Northeast Tennessee, West North Carolina, and West Virginia in the early 20th century. Artisans created twig furniture from mountain laurel, hickory, and burled woods. They twisted, notched, and painted the natural material to make forms such as clocks, chairs, tables, and doll furniture. Tourists to the mountains purchased the rustic furniture for summer cabins and as souvenirs for their city homes.
