From the Ground Up: Peters Valley School of Craft


October 4-January 10, 2020 at the Hunterdon Art Museum

We are so excited to announce From the Ground Up: Peters Valley School of Craft, the first-ever exhibition examining Peters Valley‘s fifty-year history and key moments that have defined the institution – from its earliest formation as an experimental craft colony, to the building of its renowned Japanese wood-fired or Anagama kiln in 1980, to the prominence of women blacksmiths at Peters Valley in the early 2000s. The show, curated by Elizabeth Essner will run from Oct. 4 – Jan. 10 at the Hunterdon Art Museum (HAM) in Clinton, NJ. Stay tuned for sneak peeks and details regarding the virtual opening reception and programs. See the full exhibition listing and more information on HAM’s website here.

We are incredibly grateful to our exhibition and catalog funders, including the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, the Windgate Foundation, the Marie and John Zimmermann Fund and John Sheridan and Andrea DuFlon. Also many thanks to The Graphics Office and McSquared for their work on the exhibition design.
