Frog Hollow Film Series - Craft in America

Wednesday, January 21, 2015 - 7:00pm

On Wednesday, January 21, beginning at 7PM Frog Hollow will begin its first ever film series with the screening of the Memory Episode from the award winning PBS series Craft in America. It is sometimes in the most humble objects that our history is most vividly recalled. Craft objects - being made by hand to use, to collect, to be part of our everyday lives - are more than our history, they are our memory. Memory features woodworker Sam Maloof, furniture maker Garry Knox Bennett, basket makers Mary Jackson and Pat Courtney Gold, and blacksmith Tom Joyce. We see what these artists are doing to ensure that this most basic form of human expression – creating from nature with ones hands – does not become a thing of the past.
