The Power of Disctinction

January 25 - May 10, 2020

Work from our 5,700-piece permanent collection will be on display in the Main Gallery, second level of the Folk Art Center in honor of the Guild's 90th year.

The oldest piece on display dates back AD 1000-1470

“Contemporary artists are still making traditional objects by hand using new techniques, skills, and materials. Their work is greatly influenced by twentieth-century art movements, formal education, and objects praised in modern galleries and museums. The SHCG’s Permanent Collection is a visual record of this passage of time.” - Nikki Josheff, curator.
