Houston Center for Contemporary Craft says
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is pleased to present "BEST IF USED BY", a group exhibition organized by HCCC Curatorial Fellow, Sarah Darro, that investigates the dynamic intersection of craft and food in contemporary culture. Featuring six U.S. and international artists, Celia Butler, Kazuki Guzmán, Joshua Kosker, Aurélie Mathigot, Yuka Otani, and Rachel Shimpock, this show aims to probe the very definitions of craft by staging critical comparisons among works that are moving at varying rates of consumption and deterioration. The works range in material from wool, ceramic, and electroformed metal to cast sugar, cured tangelo peels, and needle-worked bananas.

Join us for the Opening Reception, where artist Celia Butler will unveil her finished installation "Sugar Bucket." At 3:30, there will be a Q&A between Celia and Curatorial Fellow Sarah Darro. A reception will follow with curated bites by Morningstar Donuts and Sweetcup Gelato.
