Now – 8/18: Allied Craftsmen of San Diego: Hands on Design

Berlin-Kroll. Reclining figure

This juried exhibition will present work that exemplifies the diverse materials, expertise, and strength of creativity of the Allied Craftsmen of San Diego, the oldest professional organization of craft artists in Southern California, and to contribute to a broader community appreciation of contemporary craft. 

“Cultural traditions combined with the tactile and sensory experience of the handmade are what connect us on a personal level to craft. From knowledge being passed down through generations, the smell of wood, the feel of clay, and the communal experiences of textiles, our humanness resonates through these art forms. In the array of disciplines – including woodworking, ceramics, metalworking, and fiber arts – we find ways to share stories of our history and experiences. Hands On Design pays homage to the rich craft traditions that flourish in San Diego and celebrates the skilled hands and creative minds of the Allied Craftsman of San Diego.
