“Spoon | Fed,” a new exhibition featuring the works on the theme of the overlooked utensil, the spoon, opens with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Mar. 15 at UNC Asheville’s Center for Craft, Creativity & Design in Hendersonville.
Like most functional items, spoons often go unnoticed. This exhibition is meant to draw attention to their useful beauty by featuring the work of four artists who make, manipulate, or are inspired by the archetype of the spoon.
Each artist takes a different approach: Wes Airgood of Ohio handcrafts spoons with a technical mastery; Sarah Hurtigkarl of Sweden takes a more narrative approach - imagining a world where spoon bowls grow out of pillows, tables, and trees; Joo Hyung Park of South Korea creates hybrid cutlery in her “The Moment of Pleasure” series; and Annie Tung of Canada constructs spoon vignettes which reflect on themes such as love, time, and death.
Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public, with viewing hours 12-5 p.m. on weekdays through May 31. The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design is located at 1181 Broyles Road in Hendersonville.
