Art et Industrie is pleased to announce the extension of their blockbuster inaugural exhibition, RECLAIMED.
The stunningly restored 6000 SF gallery fills the entire 2ndfloor of the former Waubeek Textile Mill in Housatonic and features an enormous range of some 200 works by 20 regional artists, artisans & designers, all working in reclaimed materials.The event, titled “RECLAIMED, REUSED, REPURPOSED: FURNITURE & FURNISHINGS FROM FOUND MATERIALS” was originally scheduled to run from July 21st through Oct. 8th.
In light of the thrilled response from the enormously enthusiastic public, as well as the wonderful support & encouragement of the featured artists, we’ve decided to extend the installation through November, and to further develop this important event with replenished new additions.
Art et Industrie is the largest & most ambitious new exhibition venue in the region. The expansive size of the breathtaking former industrial loft has encouraged several of our world-class artists to exhibit pieces of truly heroic scale, as well as extended groupings of more traditionally-sized pieces down to the intimate & hand-held, some even wearable.Find incredible live-edge dining & conference tables sliced from salvaged enormous trunks of wind-fallen ancient trees by Hudson Valley stars Jessica Wickham & Richard Johnson, spectacular Claro Walnut work as well as side-tables & benches from reclaimed old-growth lumber & steel by Dorset, VT great Dan Mosheim, stunning high-design in super-strong, gleaming Brazilian Ipe reclaimed from the Coney Island Boardwalk by the famous Miles & May, & one-of-a-kind wooden wizardry from Berkshire County’s own Michael P. King, and many, many others.
