Smokey Trails An Exhibition of Modern Folk Art and Objects An exercise for the gallery’s program to illustrate the endless pursuit of discovering, curating and exhibiting mainly unseen and rare studio practices from around the world. The goal is in illuminating radical processes and those crafts people that focus on bending materiality in a non-traditional, respectful and surprising way. This show will lead you down our methodology of the alchemy formed by each piece realizing a shape, medium and size that is responding to its neighboring work within the gallery space. Although it may initially appear hazy and unsettling, we can assure you will find great pleasure in the melange of collectible design objects and art. Our communication style relies on juxtaposition that forces a conversation from curiosity to form context for the selections we made. Within the fine balance of curation you will view works that are both functional and purely about form.
