Ornate - Throughout history, an appreciation for intricate decoration has ebbed and flowed in and out of style. During many different cultural movements across the globe, a high level of adornment has been considered at times beautiful, sacred, skillfully made and high class and at other times overt, showy, overworked and low class.

Ornateness is currently at a lull in our culture. Although in recent times many people have been taking up a more DIY lifestyle and learning craft skills - perhaps seeking to return to a more natural and sustainable way of living - there are still steps we can take to improve awareness of the worth of things made by hand.

It is with this notion that we present Ornate, a celebration of artists who put profound emphasis on detail. Regardless, and even in opposition of the current norm, they produce expertly-crafted and highly-intricate pieces that highlight their process - their mark-making, application and stitching. Through the exhibition of their work, we seek to honor the importance and elevate the worth of process and intricacy in art and our greater culture.
