Reception: Friday, June 14, 5:30-7:30 P.M.

Splendid Objects is an exhibition of new Bay Area craft curated by Kathleen Hanna, who defines craft as "a set of skills highly refined over time - knowledge of materials and tools and a vision for the possibilities they offer" - this last is also known as a ‘design sense ‘ She has chosen to show new works by 19 artists of all the generations currently working in the Bay Area - descendents of the post war contemporary craft movement in California. The work in this exhibition reflects what artists are thinking and doing in the new millennium.
