Judith Schwartz Presents: Material Matters: Celebrating Sculpture in Craft Media 
Opening date: October 11.
Opening reception: Oct 11, 4-5:30pm
The primal and playful act of creating objects with a foundation of fully developed mastery of materials makes it all the more possible for artists to convey meaningful concepts, thoughts, and feelings. Such sustained ability produces unexpected discoveries. Knowledge based on accumulated experience invites playful improvisation and confidence so aesthetic choices become easily internalized and rendered with significant impact.

The artists represented in this show share a common core of a particular training—an education in art that coalesces traditional skill building, historical perspective, postmodernist theory and the diverse new wave of a hybrid practice that makes up the contemporary art world.

Artists include: Steve Montgomery, Linda Casbon, Shida Kuo, Matt Nolen, Claudia Alvarez, Kathy Butterly, Judith Schwartz, Klaus Burgel, Carolanne Patterson, Debra Rapoport, Caitlyn McLaughlin, Edison Zapata and Jane Bruce.
