ROCKPORT — The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship’s yearly exhibition “New Work by Faculty” runs through Wednesday, Sept. 7, at the school’s Messler Gallery, 25 Mill St. The 24 woodworkers, designers and artists represented are leaders in the fields of furniture making and design, wood turning, marquetry and carving.

“What an introduction to the faculty! This collection illustrates the myriad of ways wood can be used in functional and decorative work while demonstrating the creativity and expertise of our faculty and staff. As the first show since I arrived, the quality of work sets a high bar and reinforces everything I’ve learned about what a talented group we have here at CFC,” said the center’s new executive director, Matt Hoggle.
