A Look At Contemporary Craft in the Southwest


A diverse exhibition of masterfully crafted work of mixed media, varied moods and unique points of view from artists/craftspeople currently residing in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.

The works are in clay, fibers, glass, jewelry, metals, mixed media, repurposed materials and wood. Their forms and processes may echo and interpret craft history or celebrate current issues and technology; their narratives offer personal and pointedly social context; their threads of connection with the SW convey its aura and energy, the individuality of finely crafted objects and the makers’ long familiar visual vocabularies and tactile personalities in unexpected juxtaposition.
