May 7, 2016 – July 10, 2016
This exhibition will showcase the boundless imagination of the makers and designers in the DIY culture and the principles upon which it has developed. The “indie craft” movement encourages makers to express their unique viewpoint on the world through one-of-a-kind objects created with elevated technical skill, new or traditional craft techniques, and a modern design aesthetic. This exhibition is curated by Faythe Levine, a multi-media artist and curator with deep ties to the Indie Craft Movement. Faythe directed the documentary, Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design (2009) and authored the book by the same name. This exhibition was made possible by generous support from the Gretchen Keyworth Exhibitions Fund. Be sure to attend the reception on Saturday, May 7, 2:00 – 5:00 pm with a panel discussion led by Faythe Levine and a screening of her documentary “Handmade Nation.”
The exhibition features the following artists:
Elaine Bay
Ginger Brooks Takahashi
Tracy Bull
Liz Collins
Betsy Greer
Heidi Kenney
Xander Marro
New Craft Artists in Action (NCAA)
Erin M. Riley
