20th Century Guitars by Dan Hunt
As with all good showings, the party must end (unless, of course you purchase a piece) and the work must come down to make way for the next installation. So, today at the Futon Company -129 Highland Street, Worcester, Ma- Todd Deal’s Passageways & Remedies, comes down from the walls to make room for 20th Century Guitars, a collection of refurbished & rebuilt guitars by local musician Dan Hunt. Sounds like business as usual at any given gallery, take one show down and hang another, one artist, one showing. But Elizabeth Hughes, owner of the Futon Company has managed time and time again to feature and promote an artists work while giving you a taste of everything the city has to offer. While Dan Hunt’s beautiful and impressive collection of guitars hang in the spotlight, it will have a supporting cast of work from photographers, painters and craftsman from across Worcester that always reminds you of the creativity sprouting from the corners of our fair city. The place is the Futon Company, the day is Friday the 16th of December, the time is 6pm until the party ends…

2oth Century Guitars by Dan Hunt
A collection of refurbished & rebuilt guitars by local musician Dan Hunt. As each of Dan’s guitars is ascetically beautiful, the unique story that Dan brings with each is equally as absorbing, coming from a man who is truly in love with his musical instrument, he can tell you the places it has been, to whose pick-work made the groove in the body. For any fan of guitars, music or passion for details, this collection is a must see.
Passageways & Remedies by Todd Deal
New work from painter, Todd Deal. Todd has described this collection of Paintings as, “a break from his usual style and method of painting…where I allowed the texture and color to guide the painting…” Viewing this abstract, vividly pigmented work, one would think that his method was second nature, each drawing your eye into it, making you move around the canvas, leaving you with a small portion of what the author was trying to reveal, giving you just enough to make you think about each piece. It is exactly the feeling I enjoy taking away from a showing of work. Although the full show will not be on display, you can find parts of Passageways & Remedies hanging alongside 20th Century Guitars, starting Dec. 16th at the Futon company.
