Contemporary Craft

Juror: Lindsay Miś, CraftBoston Director

June 16-July 21, 2017

Reception: Friday, June 16, 6:00-8:00pm

 

The Brookline Arts Center is pleased to present Contemporary Craft, a New England juried exhibition. Since the 1800s, New England has long been at the center of American craft from silversmithing to woodwork to textiles. In recent years, the craft movement has defied boundaries and gained recognition as an art form in its own right. What defines studio craft today? How does it navigate between function and fine art?
