MOUNT DESERT — The Gallery at Somes Sound will host their annual Mid-Summer Reception on Saturday, Aug. 1, from 5-7 p.m. to promote the opening of the Hucker-Newell show, part of the 2015 Pritam & Eames Exhibition.

The show, “New Furniture by Thomas Hucker and Brian Newell,” will run at the gallery from Aug. 1 through Oct. 15. The Hucker-Newell exhibit represents the second featured show organized by Pritam & Eames, as part of its collaboration with the Gallery at Somes Sound. Both galleries share a long-term commitment to American studio furniture and a desire to bring work that represents the highest standard of artistry and skill to the public’s attention.

Hucker designs and fabricates custom furniture and lighting in his small shop in Hoboken, N.J., where he settled in 1990.

Newell, a Michigan native, maintains two workshops: one in Fort Bragg, Cali., and another in Atsugi, Japan.
