Making Matters: Fresh Perspectives in Fine Craft

September 1 - October 26, 2020


Making Matters: Fresh Perspectives in Fine Craft is an annual exhibition showcasing the work of the season’s visiting artist instructors and summer artistic staff. The variety of media, styles and techniques included reflect the diversity in the programming offered at Peters Valley. This year it features the work of artists who would have taught at Peters Valley had we been able to conduct our summer workshops.
