The Craft Revolution - Works from the Collection

from March 05, 2016 @ 10:00 AM until June 12, 2016 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

The flowering of the arts/craft movement in the 1970s created a new audience for art galleries, and fostered an environment where ‘everyone was an artist’.

Drawing on methods and materials traditionally found and practiced in the home, the craft movement ignited a level of participation and interest in the arts that had never been seen before. It included textile, wood, leather, ceramic, metal and glass, to create objects that were often both functional and decorative.

As the centre for crafts in Gippsland, the Sale Regional Arts Centre (today Gippsland Art Gallery) nurtured this explosion in creativity through exhibitions and acquisitions. The Craft Revolution dips into the Gallery’s extensive holdings of 1970s and 80s craft to relive the excitement and ‘can do’ attitude of the period.
