The Regional Arts Commission (RAC) presents The Craft of Art, which is a sequel to The Art of Craft exhibit, curated by Nancy Newman Rice at the RAC Gallery in the Spring of 2014. In this latest exhibit, artists selected for The Craft of Art, have maintained a keen sense of craftsmanship and technical skill in order to communicate coherently with the viewer. Their work varies in their manner of expression and aesthetic sensibilities but is tied together by a bond of careful consideration for content, composition, and execution. Whether non-objective or realistic, the paintings, prints, and sculptures in this exhibit rely upon visually articulate results, which are essential to the meaning of each work. The viewer has the opportunity to interpret these works of art intellectually, viscerally, or emotionally.
