The Art of Seduction
Anticipation, enticement, ideas, experience, response, memory.
The ART of SEDUCTION: Exquisitely Crafted Temptations, the exhibition, offers enticing visual stimulation and questions. These diverse, contemporary decorative arts objects explore the subject within the broader visual arena.
What is seductive?
These, unique, exceptional, handmade objects, offer enticements- tactilely in seductive material palettes and processes, emotionally by the attraction of their forms and frames of reference and intellectually by the power and context of their potent ideas. In ceramics, fibers, glass, jewelry forms, metals, wood, and mixed media palettes, tempting objects by thirty nine artists engage us in the experience. These unique, personal, cultural artifacts with antecedents in utility join the continuum of exquisite objects which historically mark their place, personna and time.
