Craft in America: Landscape

Films // Craft in America: Landscape

Aug 20 - Aug 20

Overview // This installment of the acclaimed PBS series Craft in America looks at the sublime and complex relationship between craft artists and their environment. The work these artists create often embodies the power, beauty and fragility of the natural world. Landscape highlights artists Jan Yager, Kit Carson, Arroyo Grande artist David Gurney, Richard Notkin, George Nakashima and Mira Nakashima. Their art is both a reflection of and commentary on the environment in which they live. Also featuring the Timberline Lodge, this film discovers the handmade in landscapes where it is often hiding in plain sight.

This film is shown in conjunction with the exhibition Earth, Fire, Water featuring artworks from the Museum's Craftmakers group. On view in the McMeen Gallery August 3–September 30, 2018.
