Fringe Selects
Temporary Exhibition with Complimentary Video Online
Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon
New Lebanon, New York

Through a selection of Shaker material chosen by Katie Stout from Shaker Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition explores the breadth of Shaker objects by taking a closer look at the objects on the “fringe”—colorful, ornamental, and less well-known than the minimalist, iconic Shaker pieces. Also on view are two new chairs by Stout created as a response to her exploration of Shaker material culture.

The exhibition is presented in Shaker Museum’s pop-up space located at 17 Main Street in downtown Chatham, donated by Columbia County resident, Jack Shear, and near the future home of Shaker Museum’s permanent facility.

The exhibition has a complimentary digital experience in partnership with Design Miami/ on the Shaker Museum YouTube channel.
