THE KRENOV SCHOOL 2019 GRADUATION SHOW, MAY 18 – 27 PARTNER’S GALLERY

 
Graduating Krenov School students proudly present their fine woodworking at Partners Gallery May 18th  to May 27th.

OPENING RECEPTION: MAY 18TH 5-8PM
 
With one semester of excellent instruction under their belt, this year’s students have set out to push boundaries and explore exciting designs in their second semester projects. From curved and veneered works to chairs new and old, the talent and craftsmanship of this year’s class will be on full display.

Founded in 1981 by master cabinetmaker James Krenov, The Krenov School is known far and wide for the refined works of its meticulous and ambitious graduates. Drawn in from all over the world, a diverse array of students come for the opportunity to hone their skills and to dive deep into nuances of fine woodworking.
 
This year marks an important milestone for the program with the most women representing it in its history—10 of the 22 students. We are excited and proud at the growth in interest and accessibility of the program to this demographic and hope only to expand on it.
 
Come celebrate all the wonderful works with us! Partners Gallery, 335 N Franklin St, Fort Bragg, CA 95437 open daily 10am-6pm. More information: http://www.thekrenovschool.org 707 964-7056
