"Messages looks at the ways many craft artists go beyond skill to personal and political expression. They use craft to tell a story, prove a point, or bring attention to issues. Often their work is passionate and provocative. The artists selected for "Messages" express many different interests and points of view, but they have one thing in common; their skill and creativity are of the highest level"--Container.
