In celebration of Women's History Month and National Craft Month, this exhibition shares the work of ten artists who knit, sew, weave, embroider, bead, and crochet. These crafts were long considered to e traditional, domestic, and "women's work" that many women were expected to learn. For generations these beautiful techniques were passed down with the main intent of taking care of family and filling a home. We knitted and sewed items to clothe our families. We wove, embroidered, and crocheted to fill our homes with intricacy and love. In Undomesticated, we honor this heritage through modern interpretations of necessity-driven set of skills as a means of artistic expression.
