New Works By CHRIS SHEA on exhibit in “INTERIORS”

The Strathmore Arts Center has opened the craft + design-focused exhibition “Interiors” on March 2. In addition to five recent furniture pieces by metalsmith Chris Shea, the show also includes work by prominent craft artists Michael Janis, Elizabeth Brim, Kenny Pieper, and Peter Handler. Among the works by Shea on display are a new collaboration with ceramic artist Sarah Nikitopolous (pictured above), and a table-and-chair set on loan from the private collection of Fleur Bresler. “Interiors” will be on view through April 2, 2017.

Chris Shea designs and creates furniture and architectural metalwork at his studio outside Washington, DC. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Gallery and in numerous private collections. Shea's work has also been shown at Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia, Fuller Craft Museum, Woodson Art Museum, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, the National Ornamental Metals Museum, The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston, and at SOFA Chicago with Maurine Littleton Gallery. A native of Marblehead, MA, Shea studied at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Tennessee and at Penland School. He holds a BA in English Literature from Cornell University. Before becoming a metalsmith, he spent five years as education coordinator at The Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, DC. Chris Shea's glass work is created in association with the Washington Glass Studio. www.chrisshea.com
