COLLECTIONS: Celebrating the Art of Craft

When: Jan. 18-March 2, 5:30-8:30 p.m. 2013

Imagine artifacts from years gone by, being able to see a tangible piece of someone's life — someone who has hand crafted the item to tell a story. A celebration of collected artwork is what inspired "Collections: Celebrating the Art of Craft," a showcase of notable artisans from both the present and the past such as Grady Kimsey, Robert Hodgell and Christina Federighi. Displaying the art of over 15 collectors, pieces are dated back from the 50s. “We truly love to learn how an artist makes something and what it represents to him or her. Collecting is not just about buying; it’s about visiting studios and becoming more educated about art,” said collectors Fred and Emily Gurtman. —Kelsey Sunderland
