Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics

February 10 – July 4, 2017

Portrait of a Lady screen still of Nicole Kidman in formal period costume

The artistry of great literary works, costume design, and movie making comes together in Designed for Drama: Fashion from the Classics, a new exhibition premiering in Biltmore House. Inspired by George Vanderbilt’s love of literature, Designed for Drama showcases more than 40 award-winning movie costumes from films based on favorite books in his collection.

Vanderbilt amassed a personal library of more than 22,000 volumes at his North Carolina home alone. He also counted leading authors of the era as personal friends, including Henry James, Paul Leicester Ford, and Edith Wharton—all of whom stayed at Biltmore House as guests. That literary connection is brought home in the exhibition with the costumes accompanied by the original books from Vanderbilt’s library that inspired the films.

The exhibition features elaborate costumes from recent films that bring literary characters to life, including Sherlock Holmes, Finding Neverland, Anna Karenina, and Pride and Prejudice. Costumes from 13 movies are dramatically staged in the magnificent rooms of Biltmore House. The fashions on display reveal the attention to detail involved in period costume design, and represent the work of costume designers at the highest level of their profession.

Entry to this exhibition is included in Biltmore admission. Save $10 per admission ticket when you buy 7 or more days in advance.

The Good Making of Good Things
Mar 23 @ 10:00 am

On View: January 20 – May 20, 2017

The Good Making of Good Things investigates Craft Horizons, a watershed publication, which ran from 1941-1979, and explores how the magazine documented and shaped the concept of craft as a movement, career, way of life, and cultural phenomenon.

During its nearly forty years in print, Craft Horizons documented the craft movement as it happened. This exhibition pairs works by makers featured in the magazine with articles, reviews, and letters from readers to illustrate the essential role it played in the development of craft and its cultural connections.  In a pre-Internet era, Craft Horizons was the field’s tutorial guide, its social network, and its image-sharing database. It gave the artist, enthusiast, scholar, or casual hobbyist access to all that occurred in craft.

The magazine began as a humble unnamed newsletter in 1941, bringing together a like-minded community that had yet to connect nationally. By the 1970s, Craft Horizons had grown into the field’s leading voice. In 1979, the American Craft Council, its publisher, rebranded it as American Craft, which is still in print today.

Featured artists include: Tanya Aguiñiga (b. 1978), David Gilhooly (1943-2013), Rudi Gernreich (1922-1985), Ted Hallman (b. 1933), Harvey Littleton (1922-2013), Jaydan Moore (b. 1986), George Nakashima (1905-1990), Ruth Radakovich (1920-1975), Svetozar Radakovich (1918-1998), Southern Highland Craft GuildRudolf Staffel (1911-2002), Bob Stocksdale (1913-2003), Peter Voulkos (1924-2002), Betty Woodman (b. 1953)

The Good Making of Good Things: Craft Horizons 1941–1979 is curated by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s (CCCD) 2017 Curatorial Fellows Elizabeth Essner, Lily Kane, and Meaghan Roddy and organized by CCCD.

The CCCD Curatorial Fellowship is made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. This exhibition is generously sponsored by Rotasa Foundation with additional support from Gary Ferraro and Lorne Lassiter. All Craft Horizons images and content owned by the American Craft Council and provided courtesy of the ACC Library & Archives.

CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) is located at 67 Broadway Street, Asheville, North Carolina 28801.

Opening Hours: Tue – Sat, 10 – 6.

Is Art Work? @ Spartanburg Art Museum
Mar 23 @ 1:00 pm

Is Art Work? is a group exhibition featuring five artists whose work is meticulous, meditative, or laborious: artworks that require hard work. Each of the pieces in this exhibition required dozens, if not hundreds, of hours to produce. The central myth of the artist in our culture is that of the “starving artist”, whose labor is so undervalued that he or she cannot even afford to eat. Yet we all consume what artists produce – art – on a daily basis. The design of our clothing, the shape of our homes, the expressions and idioms we use to communicate, the caskets we will be buried in when we die: all are the work of artists of one kind or another. Why is a group that is at work in every sector of our society so marginalized?

Is Art Work? challenges viewers to consider the production of art as a repetitive, highly focused course of action, and calls attention to the often unseen labor behind every work of art.
