Venerable North Bennet Street School in Boston is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. In honor of that milestone, Boston's Gallery NAGA is sharing proceeds from its latest exhibit--"For North Bennet: A Benefit Exhibition of Studio Furniture"--with the school. Half the purchase price of each piece sold will be donated to NBSS.

The exhibit itself is worth a trip, with a list of makers that reads like a who's who of woodworking, including hall-of-fame caliber designers Hank Gilpin, Gary Knox Bennett, Jere Osgood, Silas Kopf, and Miguel Gomez-Ibanez (who's also president of the school). The exhibit runs from March 5 to the 27th. For more info, visit the gallery's website.

I graduated from Wesleyan Univ. in Middletown,Conn where I majored in chemistry. I got an MA degree with Miguel's father Jose GomezIbanez. One of my hobbies is woodworking and the other is ham radio. I have talked on the air with Miguel's brother but havent talked with him recently. I had hoped to visit Boston last year to pay a visit to the school and meet Miguel. I will try again this year!
Sincerely, Cliff Milner
