To play, to twist, to bend, to mold, to shear, to connect, to stretch, to color, to discover all the many ways to manipulate wood is what Tom Loeser teaches and practices. The School of Architecture at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is excited to host an exhibition by Loeser called “Details, Details, Details.”

The exhibition runs from March 20 – April 10, 2014 at the Haigo and Irene Shen Architecture Gallery located on the 2nd floor.

Loeser will present an open carving and milk paint workshop on Tuesday, March 18, from 12-3 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.  In a video on the American Craft Council website (link below), 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.
