On February 24, the Department of Interior Architecture hosted a special exhibit of work by Stoel Burrowes, a fine woodworker, artist, and longtime UNC Greensboro lecturer. The exhibit sampled 20 years worth of work near UNCG, including handcrafted furniture, woodwork, and artwork depicting the space between life and death.
Burrowes recently retired in 2020 and was greatly admired by students, many of whom returned for the exhibit. The event was originally scheduled for April 2020 but delayed due to COVID-19.
Over the course of his career, Burrowes has exhibited work in national and international venues and is a three-time winner of the Furniture Design Award from A’ Design Award Competition in Como, Italy — one of the world’s largest and most prestigious design accolades.
