Crafting the Vernacular
Nov 20, 2021,
Duration - 135 days
Location - Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, Louisville
Crafting the Vernacular presents the work of artists Ché Rhodes, SaraBeth Post, Corey Pemberton, Therman Statom, Leo Tecosky, and Nate Watson.
While all the artists in the exhibition have foundations working in the traditional craft vernacular of glass production, they all likewise engage with and expand the expressive conditions for making art, in glass and other mediums, through their individual and collective experiences living in America. The exhibition draws from an index of symbols and signs that trace how these artists interact with objects and materials from varying stages of their development, charting a path from an inquisitive childhood to an artistic adulthood.
