Come to the Folk Art Center to see the debut of the Southern Highland Craft Guild’s expanded retail space, Allanstand Interiors, on the second floor beside the Main Gallery. Studio furniture alongside art and sculpture for the home will be featured in a variety of media including wood, metal, fiber, glass and mixed media.
Combining an innovative mix of traditional and contemporary, Guild curator Nikki Josheff has selected work by SHCG members for the new space. Allanstand Interiors will specialize in larger scale, one-of-a-kind pieces, which customers usually can only see in artist studios or at the Craft Fair. The Guild is excited about this additional opportunity to connect collectors with fine craft and home furnishings. SHCG artists selected to open the space include: Hayley Davison, Brian Fireman, Michael Maxwell, Desmond Suarez, John Wesley Williams, Derek Hennigar, Brian Wurst, Chery Cratty, Greg Magruder, John Gunther, and Kathie Roig. The work featured will rotate throughout the year.
