Free Agents: In Residence with Furniture & Woodworking 2010 – 2022 brings together the work of 24 artists who have visited as a participant in the Windgate Artist-In-Residence Program each semester over the last 12 years. Generating work through multiple approaches, this group of artists is inspired by contemporary and traditional techniques representing a dynamic cross-section of contemporary craft. The artworks in Free Agents showcases the many ways materials like wood, metal, and textile can be constructed, and in some cases, deconstructed as a means of exploring function, the natural environment, and our imaginations.
