Artists create for the twenty-first century, Splendid Objects is an exhibition of new Bay Area craft curated by Kathleen Hanna, who defines craft as "a set of skills highly refined over time -- knowledge of materials and tools and a vision for the possibilities they offer."
She has chosen to show new works by 19 artists -- many of whom are among the CCA faculty -- of all the generations currently working in the Bay Area -- descendants of the postwar contemporary craft movement in California.
The work in this exhibition reflects what artists are thinking and doing in the new millennium.
Featuring work by: James Aarons, Sonya Lee Barrington, Carly Borman,Tripp Carpenter, Suki Diamond, Mateo Hao, Barbara Holmes, Evan Kolker, David Lewin, Suzanne M. Long, Jane McDonald, Allison McLennan, Gary Marsh, Mark Oldland, Leslie Podell, Jean Salatino & Steven Gandolfo, Pamina Traylor, and Mardi Wood
