Pencils Down

January 25-April 13, 2014
exhibition that explores the creative potential and artistic possibilities of graphite. Transcending the potential of the medium of drawings alone, the exhibition showcases new applications of graphite as a material of drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation. Twelve to fifteen artists will be included, among them Chris Sicat (San Jose), who covers tree branches and stumps completely with graphite, and artists such as Kevin Chen (San Francisco), who creates drawings so small that a magnifying glass is required to view their intricate details.

Obsessive Reductive

Opens February 1, 2014 through March 30, 2014
The Museum of Craft and Design presents Obsessive Reductive, a group exhibition that includes approximately 12 artists working in a variety of media including paper, wood and metal. Participating artists share the common process of intricately, precisely and "obsessively" removing material to create extraordinary imagery and sculpture.

Many of these works have reticulating patterns, and in some cases the use of material absence is employed as a significant design element positioning negative space as a dominant element. The visual similarity of all featured works in Obsessive Reductive will be the concentrated detail and complexity of the work, despite the various approaches and media.
Featured artists Drew Daly, Brian Dettmer, Jim Dingilian, Adam Feibelman, Theresa Ganz , Cal Lane, Bovey Lee, Chris Natrop, Aric Obrosey, Francesca Pastine, Lyndi Sales,  Jill Silva, Leigh Salgado, Farnaz Shadravan , Kako Ueda, Annie Vought, Elise Wehle, and Jared Yamanhua.
Exhibition curated by Marc D’ Estout.
