January 8th, 2019 General Meeting:
Chris Martin, Professor of Art and Visual Culture (Furniture) at Iowa State University's College of Design
The furniture design and building program at Iowa State University has been in operation for many years now and has consistently challenged its students to integrate creativity and top-notch craftsmanship to achieve a high level of artistry. Our January 8th presenter, Chris Martin, has been a key faculty member of the program and has generously presented informative programs to our club.
Chris and his wife served a two-year tour of service for the Peace Corps in Africa and their art since returning shows the clear influence of the African culture. We look forward to catching up with Chris and learning more about woodworking developments at ISU. Club member Peter Kasper, a former student of Chris’, will introduce the speaker.
You can read more about Chris on his Iowa State bio and on his personal website, chrismartinfurniture.com.
