Furniture as fine art

 Chair by Greg Brown, in the group show  “The Art of Handcrafted Furniture,’’ at New Hampton School’s Galletly Gallery, in Hampton, N.H., through Dec. 13. The show features the work of Greg Brown, Owain Harris, Liz Hallen, Terry Moore, Leah Woods and Jim Zink.    The gallery says “They use wood as a medium to create designs that are functional, expressive and elegant. Each artist has a distinct style and a different goal they hope to achieve with their work. Every piece whether whimsical or simple, modern or traditional, is a work of art as much as it is a table or chair.’
