"esherick to NAKASHIMA" Exhibit Premier

Modernism Museum Mount Dora’s newest exhibit, “esherick to NAKASHIMA,” focuses on the Studio Arts movement and how both Wharton Esherick and George Nakashima used wood to tell a story.

Come, be captivated by the works of internationally acclaimed woodworker George Nakashima and Wharton Esherick, the “Dean of American Craftsmen.” This exquisite selection of Nakashima’s work demonstrates how he used wood to expose the soul of a tree, believing that trees yearn to live again, perhaps to provide the beauty, strength, and utility to serve man, and even become an object of great artistic worth.

Nakashima’s pieces are united with the work of Wharton Esherick, whose passion and vision successfully blurred the boundaries between art, sculpture, and furniture and forever altered the way the world views the artful melding of theses previously distinct concepts.
