June 30, 2023

The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to announce “Folding Space”, an exhibition featuring a series of works by Trevor Toney in the Bernier Room, at the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center.

Trevor Toney is a gifted artist, woodworker, furniture maker, sculptor, and painter, currently residing in Massachusetts. He earned his associate degree in Furniture Making and Design from the prestigious Worcester Center for Crafts in 2004, where he was honored with The David L. Morreale Art Award for Excellence in Design and Craft, a testament to his exceptional talent and dedication to his craft.

After a successful career of 16 years as Lead Preparator at the Worcester Art Museum, Trevor made the decision to resign in early 2022 to pursue his passion as a full-time artist. His work has been featured in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions across the region, captivating audiences with his unparalleled artistry and technical skill.

Trevor’s exceptional talent and artistic vision have been recognized by Lark Books, which has published his work in the ‘500 series’ for Chairs, Wooden Boxes, and Cabinets. His masterful use of wood, color, and texture imbues his creations with a sense of timelessness and sophistication that sets his work apart.

Trevor Toney is a consummate artist and craftsman whose dedication to his craft is evident in every piece he creates. His commitment to excellence and his unrelenting pursuit of artistic expression has earned him a well-deserved reputation as one of the most talented artists in the region.

The exhibition will be on view from July 5, 2023, until September 1, 2023, with a reception planned for August 5, 2023, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The public is encouraged to attend. The James W. Foley Memorial Community Center is located at 150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH 03867.

The museum is sponsored by the City of Rochester, Rochester Main Street, Waterstone Properties Group, Bernier Insurance, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Creative Guts Podcast, and the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
