Furniture maker and outdoor enthusiast Alec Jordan will display his work at Art & Frame of Danbury’s newest exhibit, “Local Color” which opens Friday, Sept. 30 and runs through Nov. 14. The opening reception is Saturday, Oct. 1 from 5-7:00 p.m. at the shop, 60 Newtown Rd., Danbury.

Alec, a life-long Bethel resident, is the owner of Jordan Woodwork & Design. His work includes restored classic New England furniture, as well original new, contemporary pieces.

Alec studied sculpture and woodworking at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York and is an avid tree climber.

According to his website, “He haunts local land clearing companies in search of unique woods, creating one-of-a-kind hand-crafted pieces from beautiful woods that might otherwise be wasted on firewood or – worse – wood chips.”

In addition to Alec’s work, two other local artist’s paintings will be displayed at the exhibit, Antonio Carvalho and James Mazza. Local musician Amanda Bloom will perform during the opening reception on Saturday.

Art & Frame of Danbury, LLC opened in June by John O’Sullivan, Bethel High School class of 1988 graduate. For more information about Art & Frame of Danbury, LLC and  displaying work in the gallery, please visit their website by clicking here.
