Artists and Makers – Wood
When I moved back to the Philadelphia area in 1981, I was quite familiar with the Wharton Esherick Museum in Paoli and it continues to be a great source of inspiration. The Center for Art and Wood and the James A. Michener Art Museum are two institutions that began during my time here and have grown into really important influences with their exhibitions and programming. The Philadelphia area is so rich in craft and it makes the area so vital to all of us who are immersed in it.
