On View: October 6 – December 4
The Philadelphia Art Alliance is pleased to announce its fall 2016 exhibition A Curious Nature, which presents the work of four artists who employ craft-based processes and materials that examine the relationship between humans and nature, and between the artificial and the hand made. Combining fiber with other craft-based materials (ceramics, installation, and photography) A Curious Nature features the work of InLiquid Artist member Caitlin McCormack and Linda Cordell, Tasha Lewis, and Emily White.
This exhibition is part of the citywide initiative Craft NOW Philadelphia. Craft NOW unites the leading institutions and artists of Philadelphia’s craft community in a celebration of the city’s rich legacy of craft, its internationally-recognized contemporary craft scene, and its important role as an incubator for arts based in wood, clay, fiber, metal and glass. Through both creating and spotlighting events during the week of the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, Craft NOW invites locals and visitors alike to explore Philadelphia’s innovations in the world of the handmade.
Support for A Curious Nature is provided by The Coby Foundation. Image above courtesy Tasha Lewis.
