New York in May

I’m excited to announce that we will be taking six BC Wood member companies to the ICFF in New York, May 14th to 17th.  We are particularly pleased that four of the companies are new to the event – Live Edge Design (John Lore), Collaboration (Marie Khouri and Dave Demers), Vin De Garde wine cellars (Billy Carpenter) and Flavour Furniture (Mario Sabljak).  They will join members Martha Sturdy and John Ross for this international event, held at the Jacob Javits Centre in Manhattan.

Marie Khouri will be showing her L5 Spine Bench – which is also part of her current showing at the prestigious Buschlen Mowatt Gallery in Vancouver right now. Her opening night event last Thursday was packed with art loving connoisseurs – we even spotted Brent Comber and Christian Woo in the crowd. She first launched the L5 at the IDSWest last fall and the media, along with wood folks like us, loved it.  Marie is a gifted sculptor who works in primarily clay, bronze & concrete, but has recently very successfully added wood to her portfolio of mediums. Much has been written about this well-traveled artist – you have but to ‘google’ Marie Khouri to get pages and pages of information and articles on her and her work.  We are very excited that she will be part of our NY group this year!

I look forward to introducing all of our ICFF participants in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned…
