Art Fix Daily | January 7, 2021

Shaker Museum launched its latest exhibition Fringe Selects (through Feb. 28, 2021) in collaboration with artist/designer Katie Stout. Through a selection of Shaker material chosen by Stout from the Shaker Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition explores the breadth of Shaker objects by taking a closer look at the objects on the “fringe”—colorful, ornamental, and less well-known than the minimalist, iconic Shaker pieces. Also on view are two new chairs by Stout created as a response to her exploration of Shaker material culture.
