“Current Student Work” opens at the Messler Gallery of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, at the corner of Route 90 and Mill Street in Rockport, on Friday, April 19. The public is invited to an opening reception that evening from 5 to 7 p.m. to meet the makers. Refreshments will be served. 

The exhibition, which runs through May 29, showcases furniture and furnishings created by participants in the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship’s flagship nine-month course. The students come from a wide array of backgrounds and professional experience, including architecture, linguistics, theology, public relations, theater, fashion design, and military service. The Nine-Month Comprehensive is designed for professional furniture makers and amateurs who seek in-depth training at the highest standard of excellence. Students complete 12 sequential projects taking them from woodworking fundamentals through fine points of design and craftsmanship.
