The Moser Legacy Explored
Since founding his company over 35 years ago, not only has Tom Moser received international acclaim for his own work, but he has also influenced a countless number of designers and craftsmen (and craftswomen!). Over the years the Thos. Moser workshop has proven to be a fertile training ground, and more than a handful of these talented artisans have combined what they learned from Tom with their own talents and struck out on their own path of discovery.
Starting on September 12th, The Messler Gallery at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine presents "Legacy of Talent: A Moser Reunion". This show features an exhibition of contemporary furniture by Tom Moser, David Moser, and seven other accomplished designers and craftsman who passed through the Thos. Moser workshop early in their careers.
The featured Moser alumni are Doug Green of Green Design Furniture in Portland; Bill Huston of Huston & Co. in Kennebunkport; Kevin Rodel Furniture & Design Studio of Brunswick; Peter Thompson of Cornville; Jas. Becker Cabinetmaker of Wilder, Vt.; Vigneron Design Studio of Housatonic, Mass.; and Stewart Wurtz Furniture of Seattle, Wash.
The show runs from September 12th until November 28th.
There will be an opening reception on Friday, September 12th, from 5:00pm-7:00pm.
