The Art of the Craft

April 12 - May 24, 2019



Opening Reception | Friday, April 12, 6-8 p.m.
Hors d'eouvres and refreshments will be served.

For two centuries Americans have made beautiful, utilitarian objects by hand. The roots of contemporary craft lie in the Arts and Crafts movement, which emerged as a social and artistic response to the Industrial Revolution, in an effort to sustain crafts in a world of machine-made goods. The Arts and Crafts concepts of simplicity and usefulness were expressed in the application of form to function, expressing the importance of hand workmanship.

 

In "The Art of the Craft" exhibition, artists Linda Georgian, Cathy Higgins and Michael Smith display their work in fiber arts, ceramics, and wood respectively. This exhibition brings to life the beauty in everyday items.

All events free and open to the public.
