Jacobs Education Center Gallery

Works by more than eighty visionary California artists will be featured in California Handmade: State of the Arts, an exhibition organized jointly by The Maloof Foundation and Craft in America. The ground breaking exhibition will bring together a diverse selection of recent works representing a wide range of materials, techniques, and perspectives.  Visitors will experience astonishing and beautiful works of sculpture, furniture, textiles, jewelry, and decorative arts.

All of the artists are currently living and working on California, and many of their works draw upon uniquely California themes and images. The exhibition takes inspiration for the triennial California Design shows of the 1960's.  Emily Zaiden, director of Craft in American in Los Angeles, and John Scott of The Maloof serve as co-curators of this exciting exhibition.
