New Exhibitions Opening @ Hunterdon Art Museum

Founded in 1970, Peters Valley School of Craft was the result of an experimental idea: a planned craft community set in the natural beauty of a newly-formed national park, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Resident artists in ceramics, wood, fiber, photography, blacksmithing, and fine metals have shaped the vital spirit of Peters Valley. (Photos by Lakota Gulick)

"From the Ground Up: Peters Valley School of Craft," is the first major exhibition to trace the remarkable fifty-year history of this New Jersey craft school. 

Featuring historical and contemporary work and artist residencies in the museum, the exhibition will illuminate key moments in Peter Valley’s formation and illustrate its crucial impact on art and artists.
