Description

Sponsored by Moderne Gallery, this special public presentation of the film I am Known as an Artist includes a question and answer session with director Carolyn Coal.

Disinterested in conventional society, Wharton Esherick moved to rural Chester County outside Philadelphia in 1913, where he pursued the life of a painter only to discover his passion for wood. Over time he abandoned painting altogether, opting to produce furniture in his studio one piece at a time for the next 55 years. Today, Wharton Esherick is known as the “Dean of American Craftsman.” Many remark that his greatest talent was creating pieces that were both beautiful and functional.
