Metal/SoutheastApril 16, 2004 - September 05, 2004
United Company Contemporary Regional Art Gallery
Metal/Southeast is an exhibition of thirty-seven objects by seven artist teams. Each has demonstrated a commitment to working in ways that are thought to be more a part of our past than our present cultural experience. While widespread historical hand traditions were made obsolete by newer technological processes, in the hands of today’s craftsmen, such skillful practices enhance creativity. Handcraft – with its traditions of refined manual skill, intimacy with natural materials, resourceful use of scarce raw material, and a community spirit of sharing with others – embodies the spirit of making which runs through all creative acts.
