Contemporary Craft’s Grand Opening exhibition – The Heart Lives through The Hands – in its new, permanent facility in Upper Lawrenceville will feature internationally acclaimed artist Caledonia Curry’s (a.k.a. Swoon) large-scale paper and mixed media artworks. Swoon is the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Her cut paper and hand printed works marry the whimsical to the grounded, weaving in fairy tales, myth, and a recurring motif of the sacred feminine. Tendrils of her own family history—and a legacy of her parents’ struggles with addiction and substance abuse—recur throughout her work. Her exhibiting artwork addresses relationships between people and their built environment and explores how creativity can positively impact communities in times of crisis and change. This exhibition will be on view from April 25 through August 21, 2020.
Join us to experience the immersive installation and tour Contemporary Craft’s fabulous new home on Grand Opening Day and the Grand Opening exhibition reception on Saturday, April 25 2020. This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all.
