The Art of Fine Furniture exhibition at the Winona County History Center is coming to a close for 2019. On the last day of this year’s exhibition, August 10, join Art of Fine Furniture artists Roger Knudson and Mark Laub at the Winona County History Center at 1 p.m. as they discuss “What’s It All For?” They will explore the functionality of design coupled with artistic beauty of design, what qualifies a piece as handmade, the values of original design and copies, and how working with a buyer affects design choices. Each artist takes different views of the approaches to a functionality artistic “continuum.” Laub, the wild Hungarian, versus the dour, simplistic Scandinavian, Knudson. There is usually a story behind a piece by a “maker” of fine artistic furniture, and Knudson and Laub have plenty. These two intelligent, fun, and very talented guys will be a thrill to hear from and visit with during this special program that wraps up the Art of Fine Furniture 2019. Learn more at or

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
