The Chair(s) Show
Adventures in Drawing
This Month at the Lambertville Public Library
6 Lilly Street, Lambertville, NJ
Presenting a Special Drawing Show
by local artist and resident: Scott MacNeill

Chairway to Heaven Beginning in 2012 and continuing through today, local artist and professional Graphic Designer/Illustrator Scott MacNeill has created over 500 original pencil drawings of chairs. The Chair(s) Show is a "Best Of" collection of these drawings which are now on hanging, framed and for sale, at the Lambertville Public Library. Over half of these framed drawings have not been seen before.

The sub-title to this work is: Adventures in Drawing: an exploration of visual perception, pattern design, storytelling, jokes, dreams and social commentary on historic and more recent events using the concept of a chair as the sole constant element in each drawing.

A reception will be held on September 16th from 6 pm till 8:30 pm in the Peggy Lewis Gallery at the Library.

Also on view and sale will be The Chair(s) book, a compilation of these drawings containing over 230 drawings, along with informative captions and chair quotes from both famous and unknown people. Each Chair(s) Book will be individually signed and numbered by the artist. Out of the limited edition of only 100 copies printed, only 15 copies remain.

There is not another object that is equal to the chair in its ability to be used as a design icon, a symbol and as an anthropomorphic device in so many diverse ways. I cannot promise you will understand the concept, but if you can ... you will be entertained.

Scott MacNeill has been a resident Lambertville artist for 30 years. His drawings, paintings, and photographs are in many corporate and private collections around the world.
