Gord Peteran: Furniture Meets Its Maker


Gord Peteran, an artist known for his irreverent and witty takes on classic forms, has been designing site-specific works of public art and furniture for the past 25 years. His innovative work has been shown in many exhibitions in the U.S. and Canada. Peteran describes woodworking and metalworking as his “paints and brushes. They possess the appropriate physical resistance and wield the kind of sensual, visual impact that allow my investigations to become real.” Gord Peteran: Furniture Meets Its Maker catalogs the first large exhibit of his work, traveling from Milwaukee to four other museums in the U.S. and Canada.
