The Foothills Art Center is pleased to present a group exhibition of Fine Craft featuring outstanding American artists working in clay, fiber, glass, metals, and wood. 

  • Artistic process discussion and Q&A with exhibiting artist Ron Gerton
  • 6:30pm-7:00pm

In recent years many craft artists have begun using traditional craft techniques to create concept based sculptural forms rather than functional objects.  This exhibition seeks to showcase some of the finest examples of this exciting change in the Fine Craft movement.  Six Artists will be featured in the show: Denver metalsmith-sculptor Ira Sherman, Cleveland glass artist Brent Kee Young, San Francisco clay artist Bean Finneran, Washington State wood turner Ron Gerton, basketry artist Carol Eckert, and Fort Collins textile artist Jan R. Carson.  Each artist will be exhibiting major bodies of their work. The “Fine Craft Invitational” will run from June 24 – September 4, 2016 with a member preview Thursday, June 23, 2016 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
