New California Craft Exhibition 2017

California is known for many things, but one in particular that stands out to me is the amount of incredible talent that resides here. Recently, I had the honor of being asked to curate a small exhibition to showcase local artists as part of the 2017 LA Design Festival. Recently, I’ve noticed a growing movement of So Cal-based artists that are taking traditional “craft” techniques, filtering them through their contemporary vision, and making them relevant for today. The exhibition is called “New California Craft” and will featuring the works of 10 artists. Check out a sampling below:

Tracy Wilkinson

Karen Kimmel

Janelle Pietrzak

Taidgh O’Neill

Jim Olarte

Heather Rosenman

Besler & Sons

Cathy Callahan

Lookout & Wonderland

Jonathan Cross

I’m so excited to be able to share these incredible works!

The show will be open this weekend only, starting Friday June 9th, through Sunday June 11, 2017 at The Row in Downtown LA. If you are in the LA area, please come check it out! Open from 12- 5:30pm. More info, directions, and details here.
