"Unartisanal" is an online exhibition featuring artists working in traditional craft and will prioritize work that foregrounds the integrity of the maker, materials and methods; favoring quality, time, principle and labor over trend, style or aesthetic. Incorporating an array of techniques drawn from many traditions, these works slow down to a different wavelength. The practiced methods, steady hands, repetition, and focus required by craft are augmented by chance, whim and unconscious intent.
