craft forms 2006

On Saturday, I headed over to the Wayne Art Center to see Craft Forms 2006, and to hear juror Gretchen Keyworth, of the Fuller Craft Museum, speak. Not surprisingly, my favorite pieces were two chairs by Steve Litchfield (pictured above), that were in a second exhibition of previous award winners. (Steve is married to my grad school adviser, Kathleen Browne, so I've been a fan of Steve's reconstructed chairs for a few years.)
Keyworth talked briefly about her selections for Craft Forms, then elaborated on the mission of the Fuller Craft Museum. The museum often allows visitors to touch the work - creating an interaction between viewer and object. This made the inability to touch objects at Craft Forms a bit frustrating.
