Visions and Revisions celebrates the work of four contemporary craft artists—Steven Young Lee, Kristen Morgin, Jennifer Trask, and Norwood Viviano. Artworks from each artist defy expectations as they meditate on decline and decay, resilience and rebirth. Lee's porcelain vessels, derived from Asian ceramic traditions, slump and bend, fracture and fold in the kiln. Morgin's unfired clay assemblages explore personal nostalgia and the American Dream. Trask weaves bone, resin, metal, feathers, and insect wings in haunting jewelry. Viviano uses cast glass and maps to investigate population shifts and the fragility of communities everywhere.

Visions and Revisions features an essay about each artist from authors Nora Atkinson, Suzanne Ramljak, and Anna Walker.
