INTERPRETATIONS IN FURNITURE | FRIDAY, NOV. 27, DURHAM

THE CARRACK MODERN ART—Four local carpenters and builders who skirt the line between furniture and fine art, and who share a Chapel Hill woodshop, decided to give one another a challenge. They would each create an original piece with four features: a flat surface to place things on, somewhere to sit, an enclosure for "artifacts" and a light source. (If, like me, you just pictured an old-fashioned schoolhouse desk with a reading lamp, congratulations: You are also not a creative furniture thinker.) Arranged in the Carrack like an art installation rather than a showroom display, the pieces demonstrate the refined craft of Elsa Hoffman, Scott Howell, Evan Berding and Meredith Hart at the dovetail where function meets fancy. See what they dreamed up Nov. 24Dec. 5 and catch the artists' talk at 7 p.m Dec. 4. 6 p.m., free, 111 W. Parrish St., Durham, 704-213-6666, www.thecarrack.org.Brian Howe
