An article in a small town Maryland paper caught my eye. Robert Brandegee ’54 has designed furniture that was then fabricated by self-taught Cumberland, Maryland folk artist Donald Dicken. “Well Worn and Usable Art,” an exhibit of their art, is being presented through July 19th at the Gilchrist Gallery in Cumberland. Dicken has realized Brandegee’s designs by fashioning the furniture on exhibit from hand-hewn parts of antique barns and log cabins. During a long career in marketing, Brandegee was also a collector and dealer in folk art, and branched out into furniture design in 1998. For more information on this Eph’s work and to see more of his designs, check out his website.
