Live, Love, Work: The Roycroft Legacy
The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls, New York
This exhibition, drawn from the extensive holdings of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center, highlights the vast achievements of the Roycroft community established in the late 1890s by Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) in East Aurora, New York. The community was created in reaction to America’s industrialization and the concept of mass production. The Roycrofters sought to revive handcraftsmanship and return to a simpler, understated, anti-Victorian aesthetic by following the tradition of the British Arts and Crafts movement. Their accomplishments in metalware, woodwork, glassware, and ceramics will be featured including desktop accessories, lamps, vases, furniture, dinnerware, and other handcrafted objects. Twenty-five first edition hand-printed books from the famous Roycroft Press will also be on view. Love, Live, Work: The Roycroft Legacy is organized by the Burchfield-Penney Art Center.
