The Man, The Maker, The Legend!

On Thurs­day, April 28, 2022, The Furni­ture Society and the Center for Art in Wood cele­brated the life of Garry Knox Bennett. We thought the best way to pay tribute to him and his larger-than-life-sized legacy was by coming together and sharing thoughts and memo­ries, not only of his ground­break­ing work and prolific career, but also his inim­itable char­ac­ter, wit, and spirit. The evening was hosted by Monica Hampton, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of The Furni­ture Society, and Glenn Adamson, noted Curator, Histo­rian, and Writer.
