Join us for a members-only evening with woodturner, Mark Sfirri. Mark grew up in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, and is also referred to as Delco, was the setting for many scenes from the HBO series Mare of Easttown. Mark will share reflections of growing up in that area, the relevant history that relates to the series, and his visits to some of the scene locations.
Mark Sfirri taught full time in the Fine Woodworking Program at Bucks County Community College in Newtown, Pennsylvania from 1981 and became professor emeritus in 2017. He has been a maker, researcher, and writer and has conducted demonstrations and lectures throughout North America, England, France, Ireland, Norway, Australia, and New Zealand.
His work is included in twenty-eight public collections including The Museum of Arts & Design (NY), Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh PA), The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum (DC), The Minneapolis Institute of Art (MN), The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Yale University Art Gallery, the James A. Michener Art Museum (PA), among others.
He has received two national awards: the “Distinguished Educator Award” in 2010 from the Renwick Alliance of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and, in 2012, the “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the Collectors of Wood Art.
