Emmanuel Gallery, Auraria Higher Education Center
August 9 – September 7, 2007

“If you are even a casual fan of furniture design, you simply must get down to the gallery and stand face to face with these classic pieces of history including wire mesh chairs, lounge chairs, a graceful chaise lounge, love seats as well as fabrics and various books and ephemera from the exceptional collection of Carla Hartman, educator for the Eames Foundation, resident educator for the Denver Art Museum and granddaughter of Charles Eames. As part of the show, Carla will be giving a gallery talk on Friday August 24th at 3:00 PM in the gallery.

“There will also be a lecture titled ‘Working for Ray and Charles–the Beauty Meaning Connection’ at 5:00 PM on Thursday September 6th at the North Building 1130 (directly east of the gallery), followed by a closing reception. See the image gallery below for some more pictures from the exhibition.”
