Forth-Five of the best Furniture makers in Texas have been accepted for the 13th annual 2012 Texas Furniture Makers Show, held at the Kerr Arts & Cultural Center in Kerrville, Kerr County, Texas. “This annual juried show features the highest levels of craftsmanship by the top furniture makers in Texas”, according to show Chairman Larry Moss. “This event is one of the highlights of the year for Texas furniture makers and their followers. People who love one-of-a-kind finely crafted furniture come from literally every corner of the country every year to see what Texas artists have created. This year’s show will feature pieces by many of our past winners plus work by some exciting new artists.”
Debbie Minns, KACC Executive Director notes “This show is our premier event of the year. You won’t find any ordinary furniture here – this show is all about the finest woods, the most exquisite design, and the highest levels of craftsmanship. While the show will be up for a month, from November 8th through December 8th, many of the finest pieces sell early, even before the awards are announced, so we encourage anyone looking for that special piece of hand-crafted furniture for their home to visit Kerrville early and avoid being disappointed by seeing a red dot on the piece they fall in love with.”
