Event Navigation

“Out of Bounds: The Art of Croquet” is a “striking” exhibition of artist-made mallets and balls. Curated by Jennifer-Navva Milliken, Artistic Director at the Center for Art in Wood, and Northampton, Massachusetts-based furniture maker Silas Kopf – both amateur devotees of the sport – the exhibition features works by twenty-one artists who were invited to take part based on their demonstrated commitment to sculpture and design in the material of wood. Responding to the game, its history and impact on pop culture, and formal aspects of the croqueterie, these works explore a wide range of topics – from personal artistic concerns to contemporary social issues – with clarity, wit, and sportsmanship.
