LSAG: Spring Connect at Contemporary Craft

Have your just desserts...and then some
at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft's
At Your Service!

Be inspired now until May 8
 as you explore the plate as anything but common. 
It's LSAG's Community Connection Pick for the Spring!

From their website:
"Whether serving as the canvas for a large-scale painting, cast into three-dimensional sculptures, or transformed into willow patterned jewelry, the plates of At Your Service are both alluring and thought provoking. They cause us to reflect, from anthropological and art historical perspectives, upon the social, cultural, and utilitarian significance of the dishes in our own cupboards."

You'll never look at your dinner plate the same way again!

Another one of Houston's jewels is this museum / active work place for artists.  Connect with them & each other, and send a photo of you, your LSAG friends, or your league's field trip there to post on the website.
