Since the late 1920s, the University of Georgia has offered instruction in ceramics, textiles and jewelry/metalwork. Through the individual visions, careers and craftsmanship of more than two dozen professors, UGA’s craft areas have thrived. This exhibition and its accompanying publication (to be published by the museum) will be the first to document the craft areas at UGA. In addition to celebrating this local heritage, the project will investigate the history of American studio craft through the lens of a public university.
The opening reception for Crafting History: Textiles, Metals, and Ceramics at UGA is on February 1, 2018 from 5:30–9:30pm at the Georiga Museum of Art.
