From Brock Jobe's article in Antiques Magazine


Well-known member

It is going to be amazing year for boston furniture. Just read an article by Brock Jobe, and it read as follows:" Four Centuries of Massachusetts Furniture, initiated by the Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library and the Massachusetts Historical Society, Uniting both organizations with the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, the Concord Museum, the Fuller Crafts Museum, Historic Deerfield, Historic New England, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, NBSS, Old Sturbridge Village, and the Peabody Essex Museum, the project will present an ambitious schedule of landmark events beginning in March. Seven exhibitions, three symposiums, two major books, an online database of documented Boston Furniture, enhanced cataloguing of Massachusetts furniture at two participating institutions, and dozens of public programs will provide a usual and intellectual feast."

This is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! The Sturbridge village will be hosting an exhibition on Nathan Lombard and his Federal Furniture.  WoW!!!!!!!  How exciting is this!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to add a footnote to Freddy's news. Brock Jobe will be in Manchester, CT on Saturday, March 2 at the CT Valley School of Woodworking. Once again, CVSW is hosting the New England Chapter's annual winter meeting and Brock will be there as the keynote speaker. I'm sure he will be adding insight on the upcoming events celebrating New England furniture. Renown carver, Mary May and Don Williams, furniture conservator and maker will also be guest presenters on the March 2 event.
