Bob Timberlake to Attend Grand Opening of New Gallery in Hickory

The Hickory Furniture Mart has announced that the new Bob Timberlake American Home gallery will hold an official grand opening on Friday, April 26, from 1-to-5 p.m. Bob Timberlake, an acclaimed North Carolina artist, will attend the event in person. The gallery is on Level 1 at the South entrance (off Catawba Valley Boulevard) inside the furniture mart.

The grand opening celebration will kick off the Hickory Furniture Mart’s annual Spring After Market Sale (April 26-29). The gallery features Mr. Timberlake’s new American Made solid leather and wood furniture collection. At the grand opening, Mr. Timberlake will sign his artwork and will take pictures with visitors who stop by.

The 87-year-old artist has partnered with local furniture manufacturer Carolina Custom Leather to produce his American Made leather upholstery products and with Ohio-based manufacturer Archbold Furniture to produce his American Made solid wood case goods products. He also used his downtime during COVID to create new pieces of artwork for collectors and art enthusiasts alike.

The Hickory Furniture Mart is at 2220 Highway 70 S.E. in Hickory.
