Rustic Tomorrow at Adirondack Museum
The exhibit pairs six makers of Adirondack rustic furniture with six architects and designers. It is the brainchild of Lake Placid interior designer and author Ann Stillman O'Leary, who came up with the idea while touring the American West where contemporary rustic design is popular. She wanted to jump-start the concept in the Adirondacks, where traditional rustic without the modern flair is the norm. One of the six pairings is Wayne Ignatuk, of Jay, and architect David M. Chlld who create a child's desk with a swivel chair and birdhouse cabinet. All materials used had to be indigenous to the region.
The exhibit runs through Oct. 19 at the Adirondack Museum and then is at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts from Nov. 7 through Dec. 13. Adirondack Daily Enterprise, May 23
