 Precious: The Fine Art of Fine Craft

JURIED, OPEN CALL EXHIBITION

Precious is a celebration of the five major craft mediums—clay, glass, fiber, wood and metal. Regional artists are invited to display the best in contemporary fine craft. For centuries craft was evaluated by its function alone, often the only evidence of forgotten civilizations but today there is an interest in objects as works unto themselves. Multiple art disciplines have overlapped as artists experiment with materials leading to innovative and exciting works of contemporary art that blur the line between craft and fine art.

Juror:  Eva Kwong

Deadline:  digital submissions due — Friday, June 17
Drop off:  Friday June 24, noon-3pm and Saturday June 25, 11am-1pm
Opening Reception:  Friday July 1, 5-8pm
