Raised in Craftivity
Curated by Maria Elena Buszek
January 26– March 7, 2009
Reception and Curator’s Talk: Tuesday, February 24, 2009, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Raised in Craftivity features contemporary artists working in craft media that celebrate, challenge and subvert our expectations of these media and the cultures with which they are associated. Traditionally disdained as “feminine,” “domestic,” and “amateur,” today embroidery, ceramics, beadwork, knitting, and woodworking are embraced by emerging gallery artists who explore the rich social and historical associations of these craft media and techniques.
Artists include: Jon Bonser, Elaine Bradford, Orly Corgan, Maggy Rozycki Hiltner, Carolyn Hopkins, KnittaPlease, Garth Johnson, Claire Joyce, Kate Kretz, Heather Nameth-Bren, Karen Reimer, Ben Schachter, DeAnna Skedel, and Laura Splan.
