Uniting Design With Nature


artsArts & Crafts architects are known for bringing the outside in to unite design with nature. In this encore presentation by the Architectural Heritage Center, CJ Hurley and Barbara Pierce will detail what inspired the visionary architects.

Along the way you’ll learn how Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts were connected rather than separate movements. A special look at the evolution of natural forms will offer a unique perspective on the artists of the day. This well-illustrated program will share historic examples and highlight how the tradition continues today in historic and contemporary homes. C.J. Hurley is a Roycroft Renaissance Master Artisan, and together with Pierce they operate C.J. Hurley Century Arts, specializing in color and design consultation, historically-inspired hand-painted interiors, and fine art for historic homes. This is an encore of their popular program last presented in 2008.
