This Saturday, two new exhibitions are coming to the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco (SFMCD).

First up is Jennifer Crupi: A Display of Gestures, and it is a feature of fifteen handcrafted works art, made from sterling silver and aluminum and each addressing way we communicate with each other, through body language and specific movements. These works are wearable, articulated and interactive objects, which have become instruments for gestural behavior, as well as take a humorous approach in pointing out actions made to express concealed uncomfortable emotions including frustration or anxiety. The works are each scripted gestures for the wearer, blurring the distinction between object maker and theratrical/performance director.

In a little information about Crupi, she has been a professor at New Jersey’s Kean University since 1999, and has works in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C., the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon and the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at the State University of New York.

The next exhibition opening this Saturday at SFMCD is the Exquisite Gardeners: A Visible Transparency Project. This features the art of artist and teacher Joe Brubaker, whose works are as described by SFMCD “a manifestation of creative brainstorming, where group experiences water the deep roots of the creative spirit and nourish the fellowship where creative people naturally seek”. The exhibition has already been open to the public during installation, as museum visitors were given an opportunity to watch it’s transisition from Brubaker’s work, as so many things were happening from rags becoming flowers to rusty metal transformed into an altar.

The Jennifer Crupi exhibition is on view until October 5th, while The Exquisite Gardeners is on view until September 21st. Log on to for more information.
