Silence invites you to an art exhibition and sale of a series of works by artist Erik Van Miltenburg on April 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. Join us for a celebration of this exciting show. Wine, beer, coffee and kombucha will be served.
Erik, as a furniture design/maker, began the work by apprenticing with a European master cabinetmaker, and continues to be influenced by the Dutch design movement “de Stijl”. He was born in den Haag, Holland, and grew up in a multilingual household in about 18 locations in Quebec and Ontario, Canada. His furniture work is in daily use in Ireland, Greece, the United States, and Canada. All the craft “Playroom” pieces are made from diverted landfill, with the exception of necessary adhesives and the occasional use of hardboard or other backing materials. These ’Sunday afternoon’ diversions are generally themed by current issues which bug the maker, and the donations can perhaps reflect possible solution-providing organizations.
Runs April 27 to May 18, 2018.
