The two-part show combines work by James Thurman and Deanna Ooley in the Craft Center’s Gallery Two.

Thurman’s part, “McMuseum of Anthropological Archeology,” is meant to represent a museum from the 24th century that humorously misrepresents this century.

Ooley’s section, “Penumbra Holding Group Collection,” tells the story of a fictional secret society and is inspired by the lack of transparency in financial institutions.

The Craft Center galleries are free and open to the public daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Appalachian Center for Craft is approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on state Route 56; turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
