Idle Hands

We have noticed a trend in artwork of late: the application of craft and folk techniques or women’s work into fine art, or the pursuit of folk modalities AS fine art. This idea turns on its head the oft-cited notion that idle hands are the devil’s playthings by presenting handwork as a very sly application of critique. Artists include Chuck Close, Jenny Abell, Seth Koen, Andrew Romanoff, Rusty Scruby, Shawn Smith, Tuscany Wenger, Brenda Zappitell, Stephen Buxton, Tracy Krumm, Davis Birks, and Ellen Tuchman.

Opening Reception Friday, November 22, 2013 from 5 to 7pm
