United by Hand: Work and Service by
Drew Cameron, Alicia Dietz, and Ehren Tool

On view in the Main Gallery, February 3 – May 28, 2017

United by Hand: Work and Service by Drew Cameron, Alicia Dietz, and Ehren Tool is a program-driven exhibition led by three artists-veterans working in fiber, wood, and clay. Through both the works on view in the galleries and a series of craft-based programs, United by Hand pays tribute to U.S. veterans and aims to create neutral ground, raising critical awareness about the history and current state of war culture in the United States.

Future Tradition: Melissa Cody
On view in the Front Gallery, February 3 – May 28, 2017

Future Tradition: Melissa Cody is a solo exhibition of recent work by the Navajo artist. Cody is a fourth-generation weaver from a family known for excellence in the traditional Navajo art. Like her contemporaries and weavers before her, Cody designs her pieces on a stand-up loom as she weaves, incorporating precise geometric forms and recognizable graphic elements. Unlike any other, however, Cody imbues her pieces with a stirring graphic vitality and personal voice, emerging as perhaps the most exciting young textile artist of today.

Pocket Museum
On view in the Artist Hall, January 20 – March 18, 2017

Pocket Museum is a group exhibition that spotlights the contemporary craft miniature. Featuring five artists working in ceramic, fiber, glass, metal, and wood–Jon Almeda, Althea Crome, Sean Donlon, Nash Quinn, and Marco Terenzi–the exhibition explores the relevance of small-scale objects in contemporary material culture and the renewed fascination with this timeless form.
