NCCA-Artsplace Exhibit: 21st Century Arts & Crafts Movement

July 11 - August 7

21st Century Arts & Crafts Movement
July 11 through August 7, 2018
Public Reception/Demonstrations
August 4, 10:00 a.m.-Noon
Jansma Gallery at NCCA-Artsplace, 13 E. Main St., Fremont, 231-924-4022.

The 1880-1920 Arts and Crafts Movement was a critique of industrial society, the modern factory, the use of machinery and the loss of traditional craft methods. The Arts and Crafts forefathers thought that a healthy and moral society required independent workers who designed the things they made.

Today in addition to the result of the industrial revolution, we have the technological revolution. Objects are made on assembly lines, of which the worker is one more step removed from the process by automated assembly, and computerized manipulation, like that of the 3D printer. The loss of traditional craft methods is concerning.

This exhibit is curated to bring to the forefront traditional art forms, hand made craftsmanship, and hopefully to pass on those traditions to the next generation. Learn about fine blacksmithing, woodworking, fiber arts, book binding, print making and other hand made fine arts.
