Beyond Useful & Beautiful: Rethinking Domestic Craft
October 1 - January 8, 2012
4848 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002
The strong connection between craft and the home is critically explored through furniture, wall paper, ceramics, quilts, needlepoint, glass and metal set up throughout the large gallery in a series of domestic vignettes or “rooms”. HCCC Curator Anna Walker selected works by 13 contemporary artists that critique concepts of beauty and usefulness in their practice.
