Sleeping with Nature is a romantic dream, draped in luxurious coverings, at home in the rustic landscape with all its flora and fauna.  The concept grew from a collaboration between artist Stephanie Morgan Rogers and Fine Woodworker Rodney Porsche who considered the question; what if what’s typically reserved for interiors was able to be at home outside? What followed was the design for a bed built to last the elements outdoors softened with painted textile, embellishments and design. It is a place to dream and be with nature.

Rodney Porsche is a fine woodworker inspired by a deep love of nature. His, studio, called Wild Fox Furniture, is located in Deep Creek just west of Telluride. He has created a hand crafted one- of- a- kind walnut bed fit for the great outdoors.

Stephanie Morgan Rogers, of Ridgway, is a fine artist who loves to capture the essence of natural beauty with her signature whimsical style.  In addition to her custom designed silk fabric and painted woodwork, the exhibit includes a Wonder Wall – an installable mood mural and hand painted canvas scenes representing the feeling of dreams and the folk-like portrayal of the natural world.

The exhibit will run through the month of July at Gallery 81435 at 230 South Fir Street in Telluride. An opening reception with the artists will take place during a special holiday art walk on Tuesday, July 2 from 5-8pm.
