THE MAKER'S PASSION

Andrew Poynter

Andrew Poynter

Furniture Designer & Maker

Andrew is a man who always needs to be making something.

The fine furniture, art items and images in this show represent mainly new work, but also some vintage design pieces that Andrew has completed over the years.

Since his retirement, Andrew has been engaged in private furniture commissions, production of pieces for sale at charity auctions, participation in several gallery exhibitions and travelling around the world. All of this has inspired his work today.

In the late '60s, work in the visual arts field led him to establish his own business designing and manufacturing custom furniture. This continued for a number of years with pieces being shown in galleries across Ontario and upstate New York.

In 1973, Andrew founded A & M Wood Specialty Inc., providers of fine hardwoods and veneers for custom furniture, musical instruments and architectural millwork across both North America and globally.

After selling the business, Andrew enthusiastically returned to his passion for design and construction of fine furniture and art objects. He will always be a maker. Enjoy!

Also Featured At Langdon Hall

Born in Sudbury, Ontario, Grace Afonso lived in many small towns across Ontario and a few years in Portugal before finally settling in Hamilton where she lives today.

By good fortune Afonso attended a specialty arts high school where she was introduced to a variety of mediums and her passion for art was sparked. Though she would complete her undergrad in Nursing from McMaster University, Afonso always had an interest in capturing the world around her and continued her art's education at the Dundas Valley School of Art, OCAD University, Haliburton School of Art + Design, and completed residencies in Umbria, Italy and Cerèt, France.

The subject matter of Afonso's work is the celebration of colour shown in her exploration of the domestic scene and landscape. It is colour's power to effect mood that works as the driving principle behind Afonso's translation of her life to the canvas. She is drawn to representing the home, where people gather and the indoor and outdoor spaces they participate in.
