In this exhibition, 108 Contemporary features Oklahoma artist members by hosting a juried survey of their work. Included pieces will be constructed from fiber, wood, ceramics, metal, and glass, with installations and more that present a diversified look at contemporary artistic talent in Oklahoma. The State of Craft 2021 brings together 22 member artists in a survey of juried fine craft ranging from soft sculpture and embroidery to jewelry and metalsmithing. The exhibition is split into three thematic groupings by juror, Jennifer Scanlan. The themes are all connected to ideas and experiences that came to the forefront over the course of the pandemic.
