At the Renwick Gallery

 The Renwick is one of the rare museums that presents craft as, Right now, "This Present Moment” fills the grand old building with thought-provoking examples of the various media that usually get corralled into the category of craft. "Facing the Unexpected" by Polly Adams Sutton feels to me like a group of living beings. Woven primarily from red cedar bark and copper wire, the undulating curves and general slouchiness radiate an open, peaceful quality. One aspect of successful art is that it makes you feel something. This piece definitely does that for me.
