Art to Sit On

August 20, 2013, 12:00 am
It sounds like the beginning of a joke: an ergonomist, a blacksmith and a carpenter walk into a bar. And the punchline is: Sculpniture. It’s more than just a nifty word; it’s also a pretty nifty exhibition, showcasing the mongrel, cross-breeding designs (half-sculpture/half-furniture hybrids) of three contemporary designers: Ernst Gruler, Jamie Monroe and Dean Pulver. Gruler’s all about minimalist comfort (oh, the science of ergonomics); Monroe’s hot for metal (he’s a bad-ass blacksmith); and Pulver keeps it simple with wood (he’s a traditional carpenter). Don’t expect your run-of-the-mill home furnishings (Ethan Allen is a no-show). This is what you’d call “functional art.” Expect splashes of African, Asian, modern and (what the hey) some nature, too.

Sculpniture:
5-7 pm Friday, Aug 23. Free.
