CAMDEN — Page Gallery's new show, "Form Follows Function," has an opening reception on Thursday, Oct. 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. The group exhibition bridges the gap between functional objects and fine art. Function may be the goal of each object, but the beauty of the form is still at the front of each artist's mind.

The show includes original book illustrations by Chris Van Dusen and Siri Beckman, hand-forged knives by Ben Breda, wood stools by Timo Foster, a hand-painted folding screen by Anneli Skaar, ceramic, glass and bronze vessels, and more. Craftsmanship and artistic expression are key to each of these functional pieces. As Frank Lloyd Wright said, “Form follows function - that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”

Artists on display include Siri Beckman, Ben Breda, Kate Dannessa, Chris Van Dusen, Meghan Flynn, Timo Foster, J.T. Gibson, David Jacobson, Colin Page, Anneli Skaar, Simon van der Ven and Tom Weis.

Page Gallery is located at 23 Bay View Street. For more information, visit 230-8048 or visit thepagegallery.com.
