Charles Radtke: Contained is the first retrospective exhibition for the renowned furniture maker based in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. The artist’s cabinets, tables, and chairs reflect his meticulous attention to detail. Several pieces have interiors that are more intricately designed than the exteriors, or have hidden compartments in which Radtke has placed something personally meaningful. Radtke’s explorations into the function of the cabinet as a container lend his work a conceptual component that relates to contemporary sculpture.
