Well the Missus and I trundled down to Brockton to catch the Fuller Craft Museum’s Across the Grain: Turned and Carved Wood exhibit and, say, it was swell.
Fuller Craft Museum is excited to present an exhibition of wood art that reveals the scope of its Permanent Collection (with 49 turned, carved, assembled, and repurposed pieces) as well as another 66 pieces selected from friends of Fuller Craft Museum (15 lenders in eight states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, Kentucky). The exhibition includes the first wood object acquisition Totem#2, a 1963 sculpture by Varujan Boghosian, given the year after the Museum’s modernist building was opened in 1969.
One other example: Michelle Holzapfel, Vermont Spoons, 2010.
And lots of other great wood work as well.
Also of interest: The Fuller Craft’s exhibition Reversible Reactions: Art Meets Science @ The MIT Glass Lab.
Well worth the trip.
