Maker, Maker (through Sep 10)

This group exhibition explores the recent explosion of D.I.Y. Maker culture and the expanding relationship between fine art and craft.
Showcasing 10 contemporary artists and artist teams, the exhibition features handmade works that employ artisanal processes and materials such as ceramics, crochet, casting, papier-mâché, collage, macramé, woodworking, assemblage and quilting to create lively works of art. Part innovator, creator, and recycler, the artists in the exhibition embrace the inventive, D.I.Y. mindset that arose from punk culture and is now embraced by artisans, Etsy crafters, and hackers alike.
