Exhibition: Crafting History: Textiles, Metals and Ceramics at the University of Georgia
Since the late 1920s, the University of Georgia has offered instruction in ceramics, textiles and jewelry/metalwork. Through the individual visions, careers and craftsmanship of more than two dozen professors, UGA’s craft areas have thrived. This exhibition and its accompanying publication (to be published by the museum) will be the first to document the craft areas at UGA. In addition to celebrating this local heritage, the project will investigate the history of American studio craft through the lens of a public university. Artists represented include Earl McCutchen, Frances Stewart Higgins, Wiley Sanderson, Glen Kaufman, Robert Ebendorf and Gary Noffke.
The museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. (closed Monday).
This exhibition is sponsored by the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design; the Lamar Dodd School of Art; the W. Newton Morris Charitable Foundation; and the Friends of the Georgia Museum of Art
