Object Lesson is a monthly First Friday speaker series that will open wide the cases of the Center’s Museum Collection through the perspectives of individuals from the worlds of art, design, performance, community activism, education, and more, creating fresh dialogues about the Collection and its objects. The series invites the public for an up-close and personal experience in an informal, discursive setting that will encourage exploration of the many treasures in the Collection.
Greg Mazur is a furniture builder and woodworker based in Philadelphia, PA. He studied Fine Woodworking at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, ME and at Bucks County Community College in Newtown, PA. Greg has always been drawn to building and working with wood, from skateboard ramps as a teenager to plywood furniture and DIY projects over the years. After pursuing an education in fine woodworking, Greg has since dedicated his life and work to building craft furniture. He is committed to exploring furniture as a method of self-expression and continues to push his understanding of the art form while growing as a wood-based artist. Outside of his personal practice, Greg is a woodworker at the renowned Nakashima Woodworkers studio.
This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it.
