A Nation of Makers at Idyllwild Art Gallery
A Nation of Makers: Works from the Craft in America Collection
October 31, 2015 – November 20, 2015
Opening Reception: October 23, 2015, 6-7pm
A Nation of Makers: Works from the Craft in America Collection features 50 artworks by artists who have appeared in the Craft in America PBS documentary series. Gathered over the past nine years of filming, the displayed works represent diverse craft cultures and traditions from across the United States. The objects, many of which were created during the filming of the Craft in America series, are produced by contemporary craft artists working in metal, wood, glass, clay, fiber, and other media. Those who choose to participate in craft today are linked by skill, instinct and passion. Handmade objects in our culture both unite and define us as Americans. Craft is all around us. It is the best representation of who we are as a culture.
