Woodworker: Mark Whitley
Whitley riffed off the concept of a Shaker apothecary cabinet to create this chest of drawers. Each drawer is hand dovetailed and Whitley dyed the inside of each a graduated shade of the color spectrum. The drawers include other surprises. Some have false bottoms and others only open when pulled in combination with other drawers. On the back of the chest, Whitley painted an homage to a local hero, Joseph Dudley Downing (1925-2007). The Kentucky-born artist is only one of three Americans to have exhibited at the Louvre museum in Paris.
