Event Description


Craig Nutt
Golden Bantam Bomb, 1989
Oil on carved wood
17Hx16Wx9D
Private Collection

We are delighted to have the opportunity to feature works in wood by nationally recognized sculptor Craig Nutt and to have Nutt come to Pittsburgh to present a lecture at the Society for Contemporary Craft, Flying Vegetables, Cornography and Agricraft on Friday, February 5, 2010 at 5:30 pm.

An organic gardener, Nutt has coined the term agricraft to refer both to his work and to the application of a craft-related viewpoint to agriculture. For his lecture Nutt will talk about his work, which celebrates the heritage of hyperbole and idealism of farming and gardening while questioning whether the prevailing methods of food production are moral, healthful, or sustainable.

Located at 2100 Smallman Street in the Strip District of Pittsburgh;
hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 - 5 pm.

Exhibitions and informal, hands-on art activities in the Drop-In Studio are always free to the public. For more information, visit www.contemporarycraft.org or call Kati Fishbein at
412.261.7003 x 26.
