To play, to twist, to bend, to mold, to shear, to connect, to stretch, to color, to discover: all the many ways to manipulate wood is what Tom Loeser teaches and practices. The School of Architecture at the University of Hawaii at Manoa is excited to host an exhibition by Tom Loeser called “Details, Details, Details.” The Exhibition runs from March 20 – April 10, 2014 at the Haigo and Irene Shen Architecture Gallery, 2nd floor. Tom Loeser will present an open carving and milk paint workshop on Tuesday, March 18th from 12pm – 3pm. Loeser has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally since the 1980s. He is a Professor of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, head of the Furniture/Woodworking program and currently serves as Chair of the Art Department. In 2013, Loeser was elected to the American Craft Council College of Fellows. In a video on the American Craft Council website (link below), Loeser comments that people are familiar and comfortable with furniture forms, making furniture derived objects particularly accessible as a starting point for questioning issues of functionality and social interaction.
