The Handmade Tale
You think you've got crafting down pat just because you bought Martha Stewart's glitter in all 24 colors? Wrong-o, pal. For proof that crafts take more than DIY spirit and ish you bought at Hobby Lobby, head to ASU Art Museum's exhibition "Crafting a Continuum: Rethinking Contemporary Craft."
It's the first exhibition to present ASU Art Museum and the Ceramics Research Center's shared collections of craft works, including around 100 pieces in wood, fiber, and ceramics. Pieces in the show include a bicycle woven from vines by Jarbas Lopes, Huang Binyan's porcelain rabbit, and Tom Eckert's Tank Chair, crafted from solid maple. Let's see you try that at home. (Just kidding -- don't.)
See the exhibition at ASU Art Museum, 51 East 10th Street, through Saturday, December 7. Admission is free. Hours Wednesday, November 20, are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit www.asuartmuseum.asu.edu or call 480-965-2787.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tuesdays, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 27, 6:30-8 p.m. Starts: Sept. 7. Continues through Dec. 7, 2013
