Fine furniture & woodwork by David Upfill-Brown – Review by Meredith Hinchliffe

Until January 28, 2014

Although David Upfill-Brown is well known in the fine furniture-making scene, he is perhaps not so well known to those outside the circle. In the 1970s, he was carving in wood and stone in Central and Southern Africa. He then decided to focus on furniture and in 1980/81 studied furniture making and design at the John Makepeace School, Parnham, in England. From 1982 to 1999 with his wife Hermione he ran a bespoke furniture workshop in Tharwa near Canberra.

He taught part time at the Wood Work Shop at the Australian National University and was appointed inaugural academic director of the Australian School of Fine Furniture in Tasmania in 2000. He was the lead instructor at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine, USA for five years and moved back to Australia. He continues to teach for up to three months annually in Maine.

NEXT - Review by Meredith Hinchliffe

Thirty years is a milestone in anyone’s terms. For a commercial gallery to run for thirty years is a great achievement – one worth acknowledging and celebrating.

Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened in September 1983. The Gallery’s aims have remained consistent throughout the intervening years, although of course things have changed – including moving to new and especially designed premises.

Bungendore Wood Works continues to promote and support the designing and making of fine woodwork and David Mac Laren’s generosity and generosity of spirit infuses the gallery and all those involved with it.

Next is an exhibition that celebrates the past thirty years, but with its gaze very firmly in the future. The word ‘next’ is imbued with anticipation, excitement and the unknown.
