Description

By Jon Brooks. Visitors to the Currier will see his "Styx and Ladder Back Chairs."

This exhibition celebrates New Hampshire’s pivotal role in the development of studio craft. Featuring beautiful ceramics, quilts, glassware, furniture and more from as early as the 1800s, the exhibition showcases the history of craft traditions in New Hampshire and highlights New Hampshire as a "first in the nation" for the art of craft.

Notable historic examples on display in the Currier’s exhibition include: an 1879 Friendship Quilt by the Dunlap Family Women; Osborn pottery and bottles from Stoddard Glass Works c. 1850; and vases from Hampshire Pottery c. 1900.

Modern-day studio crafts are also on display by artists from the Granite State, as well as by other artists whose work was deeply influenced by New Hampshire craft traditions. Visitors will see Styx Ladder Back Chairs by Jon Brooks, Hawk and Dove Man enameled glass by Dan Dailey, The Bitter Nest V: The Homecoming quilt by Faith Ringgold and other objects by Mark Lindquist, Edwin Scheier and Gerry Williams among others.
