Russel Wright exhibit at NYS Museum

Before there was Ralph Lauren or Martha Stewart, there was Russel Wright (1904-1976) who designed product lines that added style and grace to the American home.  On view through the end of the year at the New York State Museum in Albany, “Russel Wright: The Nature of Design” traces his entire career, and includes plans for his own home, Manitoga, which is now a museum in the lower Hudson Valley.  Don’t miss the gift shop on the way out, where Wright books are available as well as some of his china, recently reissued by Bauer Pottery.
