We are excited to announce our collaboration with



two organizations committed to supporting artists...

CFEVA is a beloved institution that cultivates undiscovered artists and celebrates their work,” said Stefa Normantas, managing partner of the Furniture Show. “Their paintings and sculpture will be a stunning complement to the hand-crafted furniture and furnishings on display at this year’s Show.” 


Added Lisa M. Brown, CFEVA President and CEO, “It will be a great experience for Philadelphia artists to exhibit their work in this elegant milieu. In addition to a curated installation, CFEVA is delighted be the host of the Preview Party, which means that I will operate one end of the two-person gang saw that splits a log to open the Furniture Show. No, I’m not kidding, and yes, it is a great honor, especially if the other person wielding the ax is Mira Nakashima.”


The collaboration highlights the work of the best artisan furniture paired with exciting emerging artists. The longest running exhibition of its kind in the US, the 24th Philadelphia Furniture Show will exhibit the work of more than fifty exceptional artisans from across the country who work in wood, metal and fabric. The CFEVA exhibition will feature paintings and sculptural pieces by Philadelphia artists who are initiating an artistic career, for some a second career.
