Vermont Artisan, Johnny Swing Opens “Murmuration” in Manhattan

May 9th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Johnny-swing-coin-furniture-vtSouthern Vermonters are spoiled because we can often see and experience Johnny Swing's art at the Newfane Cafe & Creamery in Newfane VT.  But for all of you who don't get to visit the Green Mountain state much, here is your chance.

Johny's "Murmuration" show is now on display now through June 29 in Manhattan at Chelsea's Sebastian + Barquet gallery and well worth the trip.

If you're not yet familiar with Johhn Swing, he's famous for his work using US currency as his medium:  benches made out of quarters, chairs created from pennies, pillows and teddy bears crafted out of dollar bills. Every piece is a genuine work of art, completely unique and incredibly engineered.  "Murmuration" is a must see! 

Now you're probably not going to be able to sit on his works of art at the S&B show.  You'll have to come up to the Newfane Cafe & Creamery to do that.
