Exhibit by Gavin O'Grady opens on Aug. 18 at TTU Craft CenterAn exhibit of furniture and mixed media entitled “Afloat” by Gavin O’Grady will be opening on Friday, Aug. 18, in the Appalachian Center for Craft’s Gallery One.
O’Grady creates sculpture that incorporates traditional furniture techniques while also integrating “re-functioned” objects.
By using an object’s original context, incorporated with those re-functioned objects, he creates pieces that are vehicles for meaning and subsequently begins a dialogue between the user and the object.
O’Grady has a bachelor of arts in applied design and a master of fine arts in furniture design from San Diego State University.
