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.
