Join us for a conversation with artist and furniture maker Aspen Golann! Our Wood And… first place prizewinner, we’ll talk with Aspen about her piece in the show, Partially Draped Cabinet, which uses traditional American decorative art forms to explore the intersections of history, gender, and power. We’ll also dive into Aspen’s “smalls” — brushes, spoons, candleholders, and the like — highlighting her humor, sense of design, and what inspiration she finds in the Esherick Studio.
Aspen Golann is an artist and studio furniture maker, currently living in Penland, NC where, until recently, she ran the Wood Studio at The Penland School of Craft. She specializes in 17th & 18th century style furniture which she blends with a background in fine art, sculpture, and textiles. Aspen holds a degree from North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA where she studied American Period Furniture. Golann’s work has been exhibited and published nationally. Among other accolades, she was awarded the 2020 John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship by The Society of Arts & Crafts, Boston. She serves on the board of A Workshop of Our Own and as an ambassador to the board of Fine Woodworking Magazine.
