Cain Park Arts Festival Artist: R.N. Goldthwaite
Cleveland Heights Patch profiles some of the artists at this year's festival.
The 2012 Cain Park Arts Festival will feature the work of 150 artists, and Cleveland Heights Patch has selected a few to tell you about. We'll provide a brief profile of one artist each day leading up to and during the event.
R.N. Goldthwaite specializes in ergonomic chair and bench design. On his website, he describes the intricate process he uses to make sure the Windsor Western Reserve Chair Company chairs are comfortable.
And he customizes each piece.
"(The design is) deceptively simple, the dips and swells that lend such an elegant line are actually made to support and cradle a person’s frame with the utmost comfort, delighting you with support and support with each curve of wood and flourish of design," according to Goldthwaite's website.
"You won’t find yourself falling into a Windsor chair. Rather it will embrace you with its comfortable support."
