The Eighties

The Eighties
September 17 – December 31, 2011

An exhibition of work from the ‘80s by second-generation California craft artists, many of whom studied under artists presented in the Golden State of Craft exhibition. The Eighties includes vintage work of established craft artists who, at the time, were fresh out of local Southern California art schools – UCLA, Chouinard, Otis, Scripps, Cal State Long Beach, among others. This was a time of tremendous energy and creative experimentation in Southern California, with an emphasis on natural forms and hand-made objects.
