PRECIOUS: The Fine Art of Fine Craft, July 1-Aug. 13, 2016
PRECIOUS new exhibit opens July 1 with artist reception 5-8 pm at Summit Artspace; illuminating treasures crafted by 35 local artists.
Summit Artspace’s new exhibition, “PRECIOUS – The Fine Art of Fine Craft,” features meticulously-crafted works in glass, clay, word, fiber and metal made by local artists, July 1 through August 13.
The community art center will host an opening reception with the artists on Friday, July 1, 5 to 8 pm. The reception in the Summit Artspace Gallery is free and open to the public.
PRECIOUS is a celebration of the five major craft mediums—clay, glass, fiber, wood and metal. The pieces from 35 regional artists are representative of the best in contemporary fine craft. The artists experiment with materials resulting in innovative and exciting works of contemporary art that blur the line between craft and fine art.
Craft is often considered a functional or utilitarian piece with decorative elements added to it. PRECIOUS has the goal of challenging the viewer’s concept of craft so that he or she may see the piece outside its practical role.
