  • Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (map)

Member Aneesa Shami will have work on view in the Craft Revolution exhibition at OCCCA. Opening reception is on Saturday, February 2nd at 6pm. Exhibition on view through March 23, 2019.

More information about the exhibition and venue can be found here.

Craft Revolution seeks works with the unity of inspiration and skill philosophers call β€œcraft” --- in drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, ceramics, weaving, architectural plans and maquettes, interior design, furniture design, fashion design, photography, video, installation art, and objects d’art in all mediums, including wood, metal, stone, clay, paper, textiles and glass.  Craft is the bond between concept and technique, the link between hand, mind, and heart. OCCCA also seeks unusual, avant-garde, hybrid artworks that merge together, in a single piece, elements of fine art and the traditional crafts. Craft Revolution will illuminate an important truth about contemporary art: we can no longer categorically separate craft, fine art, decorative art, and utilitarian, designer objects.
