Craft Consciousness Exhibition
March 3 – 13
The Anderson is pleased to present Craft Consciousness, a juried exhibition featuring 24 Crafts/Material Studies undergraduate students, organized and curated by the Anderson’s Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 curatorial research intern, Chlo Finley.
Representing the five disciplines of VCUarts’ craft program, department area heads Blair Clemo (Clay), Jack Wax (Glass), Hillary Waters-Fayle (Fiber), Scott Braun (Wood), and Susie Ganch (Metal) juried submissions from Crafts/Material majors and minors ranging from sophomores to seniors.
From the curator:
Craft Consciousness is an exploration into the identity of contemporary makers and their relationship to the materials they choose to work with. This exhibition is a presentation of the skill and dialogue being fostered within VCU’s Crafts/Material Studies program and demonstrates not only what students are fabricating, but what they are thinking about.
