Things wrought 1


May 30, 2020 – January 3, 2021

An online exhibition
presented by The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms

Virtual Opening Reception: May 30, 5:30 PM EST

Rocker Green Ash

In 2018, The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms received an extraordinary gift of nineteen pieces of early ash furniture made by the United Crafts Workshops, all with intact and rare green finishes. A notoriously fickle color, Stickley's fugitive green was neither widely produced, nor able to withstand the ravages of time and ultraviolet exposure. For the first time, the museum is making this rare collection available for public viewing in a new online exhibition curated by Jonathan Clancy, Director of Collections and Preservation. This exhibition presents Clancy's new research on this early furniture, the structure of Stickley's factory, and the laborers he employed.
