Sandra J. Blain Gallery | August 24 – December 14, 2019
Artists and makers are consistently seeking innovative approaches to traditional craft practices; creating work that is historically conscious, while resonating with newer audiences, younger makers and current issues. It is important now more than ever to examine our histories with a fresh lens in order to forge new paths and make room for new voices and perspectives, while recognizing the significance of those histories.
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts presents artists who are bridging the gap between the traditional and contemporary. This exhibition aims to recognize artists under 35 years of age who are making significant strides in their craft in bold and diverse ways.
