del Mano Gallery - Los Angeles - USA

del Mano Gallery is committed to present to collectors, museums, educators and the general public, the finest contemporary artists working in craft media, with an emphasis on studio turned and sculptured wood, fiber objects and teapot forms. Through gallery exhibitions, off-site art expositions, printed catalogs and on going documentation, we endeavor to expand the boundaries of contemporary artistic practice and increase the exposure of work in this field.

del Mano Gallery was founded by Jan Peters and Raymond Leier in 1973 as an exhibition space for contemporary U.S. artists working in craft media. Over the ensuing years we have widened our representation to artists from 14 nations around the world and focused our efforts on the fields of wood, fiber and mixed media. Five major group exhibitions are mounted each year, along with several one person shows and at least two off-site art expositions.
Ms. Peters & Mr. Leier have authored several books on wood, baskets and glass. In 2001 they were honored by the Collectors of Wood Art organization with "Lifetime Achievement Awards" in the field of Wood Art.
