From the Ground Up: Peters Valley School of Craft charts the remarkable fifty-year history of this New Jersey craft school from its earliest formation as an experimental craft colony, to the building of its renowned Japanese wood-fired or Anagama kiln in 1980, to the prominence of women blacksmiths at Peters Valley in the early 2000s.

Founded in 1970, Peters Valley School of Craft was the result of an experimental idea: a planned craft community set in the natural beauty of a newly-formed national park, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Resident artists in ceramics, wood, fiber, photography, blacksmithing, and fine metals have shaped the vital spirit of Peters Valley. Craft education has also anchored Peters Valley’s mission, making the school’s immersive materials-based courses a vibrant meeting ground for exchange.

Presented at the Hunterdon Museum of Art from October 4, 2020 - January 10, 2021, From the Ground Up features fifty years of work made by artists involved with Peters Valley. This exhibition catalog illuminates key moments in Peter Valley’s formation and illustrates its crucial impact on art and artists.
