AFH ReVision Tables at Gallery Of Functional Art in California

Tables that move? This week, several ReVision tables, created by Artist For Humanity youth and hailed for their innovative sustainable designs, make their debut in California at the Gallery Store in Santa Monica’s Gallery of Functional Art, Lois Lambert Gallery. Produced in AFH’s sculpture studio, ReVision tables are hand made from reclaimed junk mail and magazines and sealed in environmentally friendly, water resistent resin. Just for this occasion, AFH youth artists created two new tables: Surf and Thrasher. The California Gallery represents emerging and mid-career artists from all over the world. http://www.galleryoffunctionalart.net/

How did this California story happen? Gallery owner Lois Lambert discovered Artists for Humanity and the ReVision tables when she stopped by the AFH Booth at the New York International Gift Fair at the Javits Center in August. She was so impressed by the AFH mission and our youth's creativity and commitment to sustainable design, she offered to present several of the ReVision tables in her Gallery Store at the Gallery of Functional Art.
