About Home Goods, curated by Paula Wallace

The stuff of living starts with a good line – classical to modern, naïve or refined, drawn or sewn or hammered. A good home may start with an idea – the architect’s drawing follows an arc of conversation, the nature of need, the sunlight through the seasons, the slope of the earth. The raw materials of building a home are honed into both beauty and function – the clay into brick or vessel, the wood into framework or table, the iron into beam or bench, the fiber that covers a window or a bed also rests in the worlds of beauty and utility. Why shouldn’t the functional also be lovely?

Exhibiting Artists: Eddy Santamaria – Architect, Reece Santamaria – The Architect’s Son, Tim Barry – Potter, Dan Toberer – Potter and Craftsman, Chris Kemp – Blacksmith and Craftsman, Frank Daharsh – Glass Artist, Ed Fennell – Glass Artist, Madelaine Healey – Potter, Les Bruning – Sculptor, Kris Khan – Quilter and Fiber Artist, Robbi Eklow – Quilter and Fiber Artist, Kitt Hammersky – Weaving Artist
