From Peters Valley: the Juried Exhibition Maker Moxie!
Craft schools provide experiences that are thought-provoking, inspiring, and often transformative. This exhibition highlights those personal skilled gained, inspirations, achievements and stories through text and objects. We embrace the stories and work by people who have studied at one or more of these schools; the outcome of their inspiration and the narratives that go along with their experiences. How has an immersion learning experience changed you? How did it affect your artistic practice?
