Arms, Legs, Feet, Heart and Soul: The Cumberland Furniture Guild
The Knoxville Museum of Art through August 9

Arms, Legs, Feet, Heart and Soul: The Cumberland Furniture Guild is an exhitition at the Knoxville Museum of Art. I was really interested in when I saw the pictures of the furniture. The exhibition was just a pleasure to see. There was a range of furniture making: traditional, modern design, whimsical pieces, and non-functional art furniture. Tom and I were blown away with the beautiful wood and the ability of the artists. We saw pieces we would love to have in our house. Miles Field has a table, " Chicken Little Table" of over the edge whimsy. The "Music Stand" by Alfred Sharp was just beautiful. I'm a sucker for buckeye burl. Do not miss the awesome " Odd Man Out Table". You need to check out this exhibition. I'm planning another visit.

One thing to watch out for is the exhibition is in two rooms on opposite sides of the main floor. We almost missed seeing the other room. There were no signs we noticed telling us the exhibition was continued on the other side. The last time we had been there that room featured work from the permanent collection.
