Gareth Neal’s stunning Five Drawer George English Ash is featured in Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design, a major group exhibition curated by Lowery Stokes Sims, Charles Bronfman and Elizabeth Edwards Kirrane which explores cutting-edge conceptual and technical trends in contemporary woodworking. The drawer was made thanks to hand-carving techniques and computer-controlled routing machinery, hence merging traditional craft and contemporary design. The exhibition, which first opened earlier in the year at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, will run at the Museum of Arts and Design New York until 15 September, 2013 and will then continue touring to the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, in Florida. A catalogue has been published to accompany the show.
