With the demand for locally sourced goods and handmade products on the rise, terms like handcrafted, craftsmanship and artisanal are household words in the food industry and marketplace. Art-and-food-fusion events are increasingly prevalent, while craft connotes customized products and services. In response to these trends and recent scholarship, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft presents this exhibition that looks critically at the intrinsic relationship between craft and dining.
This exhibition features 27 emerging and mid-career artists working in wood, glass, ceramics, fiber, metal and mixed media.
February 6-May 10
