Art & the Object: A Group Exhibition
December 8 - January 11
Curtis LaFollette, Sugar-Creamer Set
In an increasingly disposable society, where the objects that are used for nourishment, ceremony, and relationships are watered down versions of the aesthetic objects of the past, the individual's experience with them is fleeting.
This invitational exhibition will focus on the functional one-of-a-kind object created for personal use. The coffee pot, tea strainer, and other objects of use will be interpreted by contemporary metal artists in order to convey a sense of the everyday as enriching and unique.
This exhibition is curated by Dianne Reilly of the Rhode Island College art faculty.
