Brian Fireman exhibition at the Bascom
A message from Margaret Browne
I’m in New York these days, having closed Chivaree Gallery in 2015. But I’m excited to announce that one of the most acclaimed and accomplished artists I represented, Brian Fireman, is having a solo exhibition in the Highlands-Cashiers area this summer. The show will take place in the Atrium gallery of the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts July 2- August 27. Brian is hosting a reception on July 5 at 3 pm. There will be a number of stunning pieces on display and for sale, including a complete dining set, different chairs, console tables and wall shelves.
Brian has already introduced a number of new designs this year, including the Lark console, Jessamine rocking chair, and Cumberland cabinet (all pictured here). The magazine Wood Planet Korea recently featured Brian Fireman Design furniture. Read the full article here.
You can see Brian's work this summer in these other nearby shows:
• "Grovewood Rocks," a group show at Grovewood Gallery at the Grove Park Inn, Asheville, May 13 - August 29th.
• The WNC Design Exhibit at the Transylvania Community Arts Council (TCArts) Gallery (349 S. Caldwell St., Brevard, NC), August 26 - Sept. 16. More information here.
Brian Fireman Design is currently available at two prestigious locations in NYC, Atelier Courbet in Soho and the DesignLush showroom in the 200 Lexington design center.
Brian Fireman Bio:
Brian Fireman is an architect and designer specializing in handcrafted contemporary furniture. As a graduate architecture student at Virginia Tech, he became intrigued with tectonics, where the forces generating a particular structure are revealed through construction and materials. His work in furniture unites this design approach with the hands-on craft of woodworking and joinery. He has created a unique line of furniture by allowing the qualities and beauty of his favorite material, wood, to shape his designs. Each piece balances practicality and structure with sensual and formal qualities. Brian writes: “Designs are inspired from many sources, from walks in the woods to overseas travels, but mostly from the wood itself... Wood is quite a sensual material, and it is my hope that the work reflects my passion, awe, and respect for these great trees.”
Brian’s work has been exhibited nationally and published in numerous magazines. He works from his studio in Tryon, NC.
