Hunterdon Art Museum is pleased to present, “From the Ground Up,” the first-ever exhibition examining Peters Valley‘s fifty-year history and key moments that have defined the institution – from its earliest formation as an experimental craft colony, to the building of its renowned Japanese wood-fired or Anagama kiln in 1980, to the prominence of women blacksmiths at Peters Valley in the early 2000s.
Join us for this opening reception and hear from key people who made this exhibition possible, as well as artists whose work will be featured in the show.
