Made in the Desert, the inaugural exhibition at form & concept, opens Friday, May 27 from 5-7 pm. Made in the Desert is a group show featuring craft artists hailing from New Mexico and Arizona, exhibiting an array of handmade media from ceramic to neon. “The Southwest has such a rich and varied tradition of craft and making that it made sense to open our space with a survey-type exhibition. You’ll see works that use both old and new techniques, but all of the artists on display are working within a contemporary milieu,” says Director and Curator Frank Rose.
Artists included in Made in the Desert are: Janet Abrams (NM), Julia Barello (NM), Susan Beiner (AZ), Melissa Cody (AZ), Brian Fleetwood (NM), Jaque Fragua (NM), Maria Hwang-Levy (NM), Laila Ionescu (NM), Armond Lara (NM), Courtney Leonard (NM), Arthur Lopez (NM), Cannupa Luger (NM), Vanessa Michel (NM), and Lucrecia Troncoso (NM).
