The Chair Project

The Lakewood Arts Council Gallery has a wonderful holiday show each year that runs through November and December.  Earlier this year artists were asked to embellish a found chair, adult or child sized, that would be donated to the gallery and sold as a fundraiser at the holiday show.  Several artists participated, and I enjoyed adding chairs to my weekly searches through the local thrift stores, finding four children's chairs over the months.  After re-gluing, screwing, and sanding the chairs as needed, I was ready for the ornamental painting.  Some also have details highlighted with gold penwork.  See the results below.  Next year it will be small table and I'm already on the lookout!
