About The Well-Made World:

The Asheville Art Museum has an expansive Permanent Collection that includes fine craft objects representing key themes from the history of craft in the United States during the 20th and 21st centuries. This selection from the Museum’s craft collection reveals the genre’s consistent commentary on the world around us. Craft exists as an integral aspect of our ability to create and interpret objects of meaning. By considering key pieces from the Permanent Collection, such as Walter B. Stephen’s Creamer (Blue) (1950) featured in the exhibition, we see a variety of ways in which craft responds to tradition in light of advances in technology and shifts in culture, both in a historic context as well as more contemporary examples. This exhibition explores the ongoing story of craft and its particular significance to Western North Carolina.

This exhibition is curated by Karen Peltier, the Asheville Art Museum’s Windgate Intern of the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design.
