Whether in its found or fabricated form, metal is the material of focus for this exhibition. However, the ten contemporary Northwest artists make dramatic breaks from the traditional processes and products associated with this ancient craft. They move around treasured categories, open up modes of presentation, subvert machine age aesthetics, and reveal the complexities of contemporary life.
