The Windgate Center of Art + Design has a new exhibition up by Arthur Hash, and it portrays everyday items as identity shapers.
“The Daily Carry In A Post Digital Age” shows items that people don’t necessarily see or pay mind to, such as good luck charms, river stones, small folding knives and more, according to a press release.
Hash’s studio practice combines traditional fabrication techniques and limited production-manufacturing
methods. As an assistant professor in the jewelry and metalsmithing department at the Rhode Island School of Design, he has been teaching 3-D modeling and printing for over a decade and is an advocate for the processes and technologies.
Hash received his Master of Fine Arts degree in metalsmithing and jewelry design from Indiana University in 2005 and his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Crafts/Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002. Hash was awarded his second fellowship in 2007 from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond Virginia and named a Searchlight Artist by the American Craft Council, according to a press release.
“The Daily Carry In A Post Digital Age” is on display through April 1 in the small gallery on Level 1. The Windgate Center will host an artist talk at 5:30 p.m. April 19 in WCAD 101.
