Since fire, light has been utilitarian, decorative, and such a routine part of our existence that often we don’t mark its significance. This exhibit promises to make viewers take a renewed look at fine-craft lighting. It presents new ma-terials paired with lighting, shows current trends in using LED lights, and pushes the audience to consider amping up the art in their own home lighting. Each of the following media will be represented: Clay, Wood, Glass, Fiber (paper), Metal and Jewelry. We’ll have chandeliers, floor lamps, table lamps, whimsical lamps and serious artistic lights, as well as art to wear.
Artists are eligible to submit recent work related to the theme.
