Wendy Maruyama and Pamela Weir-Quiton In Conversation

When the most famous personalities in the American postwar craft movement became nationally recognized makers of modern art, their chosen types of creative production remained wholly gendered. While textiles and jewelry were considered women’s domain, the woodworking shop was associated with men such as George Nakashima and Wendell Castle. During the 1960s and 1970s, however, California women designers broke the mold.

Join two of these woodworking pioneers, Wendy Maruyama and Pamela Weir-Quiton, in conversation with John Stuart GordonBenjamin Attmore Hewitt Curator of American Decorative Arts at the Yale University Art Gallery, for a conversation on occasion of Born Too Tall: California Women Designers, Postwar to Postmodern.
