The School of Architecture at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa hosts an exhibition by Tom Loeser called Details, Details, Details. Loeser teaches and practices different ways to manipulate wood. The exhibition runs March 20–April 10, 2014 at the school’s Haigo and Irene Shen Architecture Gallery, 8 a.m–5 p.m.
In a video on the American Craft Council website, Loeser comments that people are familiar and comfortable with furniture forms making furniture derived objects particularly accessible as a starting point for questioning issues of functionality and social interaction.
Loeser will present an open carving and milk paint workshop in the gallery on Tuesday, March 18, 12–3 p.m. There will be a talk with the artist on Thursday, March 20, 6–7 p.m. in Arch 215 followed by the opening reception at the gallery, 7–9 p.m.
Loeser has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally since the 1980’s. He is a professor of art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently serves as chair of the art department. In 2013, Loeser was elected to the American Craft Council College of Fellows.
