Gender Bend: Women in Wood, Men at the Loom

Coming to the Fuller Craft Museum
October 21, 2017 – March 11, 2018

Gender Bend: Women in Wood, Men at the Loom is a multi-media exhibition featuring male weavers alongside female wood turners – two populations that have been traditionally underrepresented in their fields. This project will introduce the public to remarkable artists who challenge our long-held perceptions about their chosen fields, while encouraging new practitioners to consider mediums rich in possibility. The visually resplendent exhibition offers wide appeal across all audiences, providing multiple programming opportunities geared to engage our patrons during the exhibition’s run and beyond. Jon Eric Riis and Tib Shaw are co-curators.

Opening October 28th, 2:00 – 5:00 pm

2:15 pm Gallery talk by Dietlind Vander Schaaf of New England Wax
3:00 pm Gender Bend curators’ talk
Reception, gallery talk, and curator’s talk are included with Museum admission.
Reserve your spot today.
