In conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of Craft Forms, the Wayne Art Center proudly presents this year’s companion exhibition, Living with Craft, in the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Gallery. After showcasing the unique works of more than 2,000 talented craft artists over the past 20 year, Wayne Art Center became excited about the idea of curating an exhibition that celebrated both the aesthetic and functional role craft plays in everyday lives. With more than 200 works of fine contemporary craft by 53 artists, Living with Craft demonstrates the potential for contemporary craft to complement and enhance one’s home décor. Outstanding works of furniture, lighting, floor coverings, textiles, ceramics, jewelry, glass, fiber, metal and mixed media were selected to created installations that represent interior living environments. These works hope to inspire the visitors with creative and functional ideas for incorporating original, handmade works of contemporary craft into daily lives. The Wayne Art Center is grateful to all the artists, participating in Living with Craft and is pleased to share with visitor their insider view of the materials, processes and concepts behind their works.
