A friend of mine recently encouraged me to go see an art show at MassArt that after going I thought was totally awesome and I want to share it with other Boston area crafters. Here is the description from the MassArt website:
Sandra and David Bakalar Gallery
September 5-October 14, 2006
Massachusetts College of Art presents Crafty, an exhibition that examines the work of twenty-one contemporary artists who re-appropriate materials and/or methods that were traditionally defined as "craft". This multi-disciplinary exhibition includes sculpture, video, painting, site-specific installations, and public art that creatively reference craft in a challenging, subversive, and relevant way. Artists include: Elaine Bradford, Nick Cave, Rob Conger, Samantha Field, George Greenamyer, Kirsten Hassenfeld, Kent Henricksen, Christian Holstad, Imi Hwangbo, Christina Mancuso, Ruth Marshall, Ruvim Mogendovich, John Newman, John O'Reilly, Paola Pivi, Isabel Riley, Fred Sandback, Lara Schnitger, Beverly Semmes, Yuken Teruya, and Randal Thurston.
Gallery hours: Mon.-Fri., 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.; Sat., 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m."
It is only running for two more weeks but I definitely reccomend it. If you are reluctant to go because you don't like the idea about wandering around an unknown campus do not fret it is really easy to get to! It is right off the 'Longwood Ave' stop on the Green E-line. And it is Free!!
