The Art of Reclaimed Wood
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Wood reclaimed from old houses, factories, barns, and boardwalks has become a valuable commodity, treasured for the patina that gives witness to its history. Today, the woods are both preserved like the woods that frame The National Arts Club and reemerge through demolition.
Klaas Armster and Alan Solomon are partners at Sawkill Lumber, a Brooklyn-based supplier of reclaimed woods. Their recent book, Reclaimed Wood, A Field Guide, published by Abrams Books, is the first complete visual handbook to this popular resource, covering history, culture, salvage, contemporary uses, and practical advice.
Join Armster and Solomon as they reveal the fascinating history and new uses of New York City’s hidden resource— reclaimed wood.
Venue: The National Arts Club
15 Gramercy Park S
