The Design Gallery at The Warehouse will present “Stickley Furniture: the Evolution of a Design,” an inside look into the furniture-making process of one of America’s most legendary furniture companies, April 20-May 13. The exhibition is free and open to the public. A discussion with Stickley Museum Director Sarah Lanigan will be held on Saturday, April 21, at 5:30 p.m. followed by a reception from 6-8 p.m.

The Design Gallery is located on the first floor of The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse. Patrons should enter The Warehouse via the ground-floor door adjacent to the café on West Fayette Street or the first-floor door on West Washington Street.

L. & J.G. Stickley Inc. recently introduced its Finger Lakes Collection, which features solid cherry pieces with a distressed, rustic finish. In this exhibition, patrons can follow the design process from inspiration to finished product through the Bristol Chair, a chair that was inspired by a piece in the Stickley Museum Collection.

The exhibition will be open daily, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information, contact Bradley Hudson at bjhudson@syr.edu.
