Oceanside Museum of Art presents an invitational exhibition featuring some of San Diego's most gifted artists in San Diego Design: New Work from Allied Craftsmen. Allied Craftsmen of San Diego has remained a premier organization for talented San Diego artists for over 50 years. its members are known for groundbreaking techniques and innovative designs that are sculptural, conceptual, decorative or functional - often using non-traditional forms and introducing a variety of media. The selected artists are recognized nationally and internationally as leaders in their fields and many are faculty in the art departments at area colleges and universities. Although originally created to showcase artists who work in clay, wood, fiber, metal and glass, the organization now includes members who honor design as well as craftsmanship.
San Diego Design: New Work from Allied Craftsmen includes jewelry, furniture, ceramics and multi-media from 16 San Diego based artists.
