CAST: Art & Objects
Craft Forms 2018 Companion Show
December 8, 2018 – January 26, 2019
Wayne Art Center, Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Gallery
This curated invitational exhibition will display a selection of cast art and objects continuing and building on the theme of the award-winning book, CAST: Art and Objects Made Using Humanity’s Most Transformational Process, by Jen Townsend and Renée Zettle-Sterling (Schiffer Publishing, 2017.) This first-of-its-kind book reveals how the process of casting — forming a material into a mold — has transformed our world through its history and omnipresence.
In addition to works by contemporary artists and craftspeople, the exhibition will include historical objects, as well as some everyday objects. The purpose of this show (like the book) is to encourage the audience to consider casting’s countless and exciting contributions to the world around us.
