"Crafting Tales: Grimms Reinvented"
2004-08-07 until 2004-10-24
Fuller Museum of Art
Brockton, MA, USA United States of America

You know the stories of Cinderella and Rumpelstiltskin, but have you ever heard of The Girl Without Hands or The Singing, Soaring Lark? Twenty artists reinvent these and other tales of the brothers Grimm in the exhibition Grimmís Fairy Tales at Fuller Craft Museum August 7 through October 24, 2004. Artists Janis Mars Wunderlich, Renee Harris, Michael Rogers, Dale Broholm, Peter Thibeault and more were invited to select stories from over 200 fairy tales published by the Grimm brothers in the early 1800ís.

Working in wood, metal, clay, glass and fiber the artists then created artwork based on the tales. The resulting work ranges from fanciful and dream-like to dark and menacing like the colorful stories on which they are based. Text from each of the selected tales will be included in the exhibition.

Grimmís Fairy Tales will bring out the child in all of us and stretch imaginations to the limits. Everyone will find something to enjoy! This exhibition has been organized by The Society of Arts and Crafts, Boston.
