Just returned from the Smithsonian Craft Show being held this weekend at the National Building Museum in DC. It was amazing - I don't want to tell you how much money I spent!
The show has more than fifty new artists participating for the first time; many with a beautiful new approach to handmade objects. I think the excitement of the show has to do with the three outstanding women who served as the jury and selected the new group of artists.
Some of the work I thought was outstanding includes:
|Mark A. Perry, a folk art sculptor. His imagery of the dog with the wheel is striking, and yes, I want one of them.|
