Oklahoma City to host a number of artists, one of them being Tom Dumke of Thomas William Furniture
Tom Dumke of Thomas William Furniture is headed west. He is making his
way to Oklahoma City for the Oklahoma City Arts Festival. Tom will join
over 144 of the nation's top contemporary craft artists in presenting
their latest handmade works.
"This is my first year exhibiting at Oklahoma City Arts Festival," says Tom. Dumke has been hand crafting furniture for the past 30 years. According to Tom Dumke, "My work of beautifully hand-crafted furniture reflects the clean line of the Shaker form. It also inspires my designs, creating pieces with a modern flare and sized proportionally for today's needs."
Since 1967, the Festival of the Arts has been Oklahoma City’s rite of spring. The Festival is a community celebration of the visual arts, performing arts and culinary arts. The 2015 Festival of the Arts takes place April 21-26 in Downtown Oklahoma City at the Festival Plaza and the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
