uncommon objects

November 2, 2007 – September 2008

This exhibition showcased some of the finest works from the SFCA Art in Public Places Collection, produced from media typically associated with craft – clay, wood, fiber, metal, and glass. The exhibition was divided into a series of sections that explored common threads emerging in craft production over the last 40 years: Functional Beauty, Symbolic Functionalism, Aesthetic Experimentation: Exploration of Form and Surface, Transcending Boundaries, and Inspired by Place. Work by local, national, and international artists, including Satoru Abe, Michael Tom, Claude Horan, and Toshiko Takaezu were shown.
