DURHAM, N.C. - Dec. 13, 2021 - PRLog -- Horse & Buggy Press and Friends / PS118 Gallery & Event Space Press Release

Celebrating their 25 year anniversary, H&B and Friends are excited to share the chair gallery artist Evan Berding designed and produced — and which just won the exclusive WORLD category/Maker of the Year award from WoodReview. PS118 Gallery has the chair on view and for sale, hosts a holiday reception this Friday from 6-9pm, and expanded hours through Dec. 23.

Wellborn Chair, Evan Berding FIRST PLACE—World category
WoodReview Maker of the Year 2021 Award

Contact the gallery to arrange for private viewings with the young (39) craftsperson himself (who is active making a range of commissioned fine furniture).

The gallery is eager to see as much of a spotlight shone on this remarkable achievement and work as the bright lights focusing on area culinary and tech scene endeavors. The visual arts in this area have not received much attention in recent years and this has only become worse during covid. Coverage on exhibitions, the craft wares in the two galleries, and the nine books published this year would be appreciated to help spark joy and conversation in in different directions.

TWO HOLIDAY RECEPTIONS special guests, one day only sales, and door and raffle prizes.

PS118 — Friday, December 17, 6–9pm   Five exhibits on display

An interesting array of curated exhibitions have been slotted for the next year (https://www.horseandbuggypress.com/-future-broadstreet-exhibits). The gallery is interested to see coverage on exhibits, the 60+ artists and craftspersons on the roster, and theirs series of salon events (readings, artist talks, performances, and quarterly popups) and the nine books we published this year. Gallery visits with artists and writers can be easily arranged for engaging conversations and possible feature stories.

The work of local artists is not sitting on cargo ships. Let's celebrate it and promote it.
