Haute-Kraft: December 5th, 2009-January 6th, 2010
Artist's Reception: Saturday, December 5th, 5-8pm
Free and open to the public
The Posie Kviat gallery is pleased to present an exceptional roster of artists for our Haute-Kraft holiday show, premiering December 5th, 2009 and running through January 6th, 2010. This exhibition will spotlight an array of functional, hand-made art; from artware & fiber-arts to puppets and jewelry. Work by Anique Taylor, Sally Rothschild,Denyse Schmidt, Lora Shelley, Amy Saidens, Zoya Geacintov, Olek, Laura Hughes, Olivia Lawrence, Beth Carey, Margie Darrow, and Dave Channon will be featured. With the advent of online handmade and vintage markets, home-grown indie-designer websites and blogs touting the best eco-friendly finds in art, jewelry, and clothing, interest in all things hand-made is suddenly flourishing by way of the Internet. This is a curious development in that its venue, though equitable in its accessibility, leaves participants aloof from it's physical community. Regardless, because the arts instill a sense of identity and culture to the people throughout a domain, whether it be within the virtual network of the "world wide web," we accept this development.
The Posie Kviat wishes to embolden this movement by displaying some of the most original and at times, deviant Craft-Work available to the public. Dynamic and significant to our daily uses, Haute-Kraft emphasized function in this context, yet insists to preclude any or all that lacks distinctiveness. Swayed by the influence of William Morris, a craft movement has certainly persisted beyond Art Nouveau and Deco to become something which thrives in even unexpected genres. Working in this vein, the artists selected for Haute-Kraft convey, at times, an eccentricity quite admirable and unique.
