Tradition/Innovation: American Masterpieces of Southern Craft & Traditional Art, is a celebration of 30 master craftspeople and traditional artists in the South. It introduces you to a surprising range of artwork, from a Mardi Gras Indian costume and contemporary glass to baskets, quilts, ceramics and books. The exhibit examines connections and differences between traditional arts and contemporary craft, and the actual stories and voices of living master artists. Some are master artists whose work continues an ongoing tradition and whose mastery of the process and materials invites a deeper appreciation of that craft. Other artists use established materials, techniques, or processes as a springboard for innovation and the starting point for advancing their own ideas about what art is in our restless, contemporary world.
