A Conversation about Craft

Join us for a spirited conversation moderated by artist Douglas Ewart featuring Craft Invitational curatorial committee members, Delores Fortuna and Don Friedlich, and exhibiting artist, Kee-Ho Yuen.

The “reasoning” as Ewart calls it, will be a forum to exchange ideas, knowledge and concepts while exploring the role of craft in the art world and in our daily lives.

Topics include: Craft vs. Art, the ecology of traditional ways of fabrication, the intersection of craft with the sciences, and the importance of play.

Following the conversation Douglas Ewart will discuss his multidisciplinary work which weaves together music, art making, and performance.

Mixed media artist Lorraine Reynolds will be harvesting art materials next to her work in the gallery.  She will show the process of dissembling garments and making them into the balls that form the exhibition. Lorraine will provide scissors for those who want to join in the harvesting.
