Gallery@Case[werks] announces the opening of our Fall exhibition,Product Lines 2: Prototypes, on view September 26th through November 7th, 2014.

What is embodied in a prototype? a) aspirations of the maker; b) sources of inspiration; c) the iterative process from idea to fruition

Answer: all of the above.

This exhibition builds on Product Lines 1 held in 2013 and contributes to an ongoing conversation with artists, artisans and designers engaged in creative commerce. The curator’s intention with this series is to showcase “makers” in the act of “making” while documenting divergent approaches within the context of contemporary trends in art and design.

In what we intend to be an annual exhibition, twenty artists, artisans and designers have been invited to present current work along with iterative prototypes and inspirational sources. The works are exhibited in a manner that helps the viewer tap into the makers’ process by connecting their creation with the formative idea. Several themes are will be presented within the exhibition: experimentation with materials; the iterative process in the development of an idea; and, the act of taking an emergent idea to fruition.
