ART ON VIEW
Steel+Wood: The Underpass Collective
at Axel’s Gallery & Frame Shop in Waterbury
August 28-October 20, 2018
At Axel’s Gallery, The Underpass Cooperative showcases collaborative furniture, lighting and other functional works made of steel and wood. While often used as the carrot to garner commissioned work, these on-spec pieces allow each of the three craftsmen to envision work that is both improvisational and wrought with complete creative freedom. The pieces are decisively contemporary, while utilizing age-old craft traditions.
While actively maintaining their individual, neighboring workshops, The Underpass Collective’s Ben Cheney, Jesse Cooper, and Chris Eaton share their resources, feedback and lunch on a daily basis.
