The Universe Dining Table and Chairs Set
(Click images to enlarge.)
The artists: June Karkee, Jyotsna Karkee, Jorwille Pagarian, Elaiza Nada, and Jose Torres.
Inspiration: We decided to portray the entire galaxy in which we live in. We painted the seven planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) on the chairs. We made them look as if they’re floating around in space. The legs of the table have the same theme of the galaxy as the chairs. The table features the earth with motifs from the world’s different cultures. On the outer part of the table, we painted just a few flags of 20 countries from the world.
Specifications: (1) 60″ round pine table and (4) Windsor-style chairs; hand painted with acrylic, non-toxic paint.
Price: $250; Please contact the Development Office to purchase this set.
The “Swan Lake” for Two Table and Chairs Set
(Click image to enlarge.)
The artists: Karla Reyes, Pablo Edwardo Soto Marte, Janel Cardenas, Shaza Ali, and Danith Chanvuth
Inspiration: The team painted an interpretation of Swan Lake. One of the chairs depicts a young woman in a boat; the other chair depicts a young man in a boat. When the chairs face each other, it becomes apparent that there is only one boat and one great divide between the star-crossed lovers. The table represents the reunification as swans. Our design is an ode to true love.
Specifications: (1) 11″x 17″ rectangle metal table, and (2) ladderback chairs; hand painted with acrylic, non-toxic paint.
Price: $125; Please contact the Development Office to purchase this set.
