words by DESIGN HISTORIAN
ELIZABETH ST. GEORGE

The objects in our daily life not only serve a functional necessity, but are also expressions of our aspirations, desires, and view of how we want to inhabit our lives. 

To live artfully is the aesthetic beauty with which we surround ourselves. It is also the ritual performance of daily life, connecting our actions across time and place and enacting them with purpose that gives us grounding. With Art and Purpose, RW Guild Gallery explores the wonder that nine artists have created in the everyday—through tactility, striking forms and gestures, and reinvention of deep craft traditions across cultures.
