California Handmade Crafts: State Of The Arts

Art in America is satisfied to declare California Handmade: State of the Arts, a show of creative model, furniture, materials, adornments and improving expressions by more than 80 visionary California craftsmen, curated by Craft in America Center Director, Emily Zaiden. The display will be mounted at the Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts in the wonderful foothills of Alta Loma, CA. A littler, buddy presentation will open in July at the Craft in America Center.

It is anything but difficult to dichotomize the determination of articles, arranging sculptural versus utilitarian, plan versus make—however that would do an insult to the expectation of California Handmade, which is to feature the far reaching field of work being made by specialists in California today. The condition of our art is definitely not uniform.

After the show opens at The Maloof, a choice of extra work by the twelve center specialists will be on see at the Craft in America Center beginning in July and going through September.
