“Craft in America: Expanding Traditions”

“Craft in America: Expanding Traditions” features handcrafted furniture, textiles, baskets, jewelry and more — many tilting toward the offbeat and avant-garde. The touring exhibit is a companion to the recent PBS series chronicling the development of American craft in the past two centuries. Houston is only one of seven stops in the nation getting the exhibit, and its wide array of items might just send you home to pull out those chisels and sewing baskets. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through May 4. 4848 Main. For information, call 713-529-4848 or visit www.crafthouston.org. Free.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 22. Continues through May 4, 2008
