craft traditions

Don Friedlich (detail) at James Watrous Gallery

Donald Friedlich has developed an international reputation for his elegant, innovative jewelry in glass and gold. Dianne Soffa's abstract color field paintings in encaustic, oil, and acrylic have thick, luscious surfaces, luminous color, and an emotional core.

Artists and artisans who are preserving craft traditions like harness-making, decoy carving, blacksmithing, papermaking, weaving, and more carry knowledge accumulated from thousands of individuals over hundreds of years. And yet the accumulated knowledge and experience is surprisingly fragile.

Vital Skills builds on the current interest in community resilience and "re-skilling" by bringing together the work of people who are preserving traditional hand skills in Wisconsin.

An exploration of landscape through the painstaking and richly textured medium of fabric and embroidery, guest curated by Jody Clowes.
