Previous 2023 Exhibitions

OCT 7 – DEC 23

2023 Intern Exhibition: Some Objects

"Some Objects" presents a comprehensive body of work created by the interns living and working together at Touchstone Center for Crafts during the 2023 season. Through a thoughtful selection of gifts and crafted objects, this exhibition seeks to illuminate how the internship experience can foster kinship between a collective of craftspeople, who, outside of a craft school environment, would likely not have a chance to engage in such a tightly-knit communal space.


Join us for a reception on Saturday, Nov. 4th from 11am - 4pm.

Distinctive Drinkware

featuring 25 accepted artists

Touchstone is hosting a national juried exhibition that explores the idea of Distinctive Drinkware. Not just everyday mass produced consumer goods, but rather handcrafted items such as cups, shakers, cocktail spoons, bottle openers, and more. The focus of this exhibition is on the function and concept of not only the drinking vessel, but the objects and accessories used to create the drinks. Through the exploration of drinkware, this exhibition aims to serve as a platform to elevate the modern day experience of crafting and enjoying your favorite beverages!

MAY 1 – JUN 30

366 Hooks

If you aren’t already "hooked" on blacksmithing, you will be after viewing this display of unique forged hooks created by Matt Jenkins of Cloverdale Forge in Manitoba, Canada! Jenkins proves there is no limit to the innovation and execution of making something as "simple" as a hook. Curated and produced by Cloverdale Forge and the Manitoba Craft Council, Manitoba, Canada and touring the USA by the Artist-Blacksmith’s Association of North America (ABANA).


Opening reception during Touchstone’s Open House on Saturday, June 3 from 11AM-4PM.
