Deadline: 30 September 30, 5pm
The Greater Denton Arts Council announces the opening of its 2017 Call for Entries for the 30th annual Materials: Hard & Soft National Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition.
Recognised as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard & Soft began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. The exhibition celebrates the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media. Drawing hundreds of applications from across the United States each year, approximately 70 works will be selected for exhibition by our 2016 Juror, Elizabeth Kozlowski. As the curator of the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Kozlowki has over 12 years of curatorial and gallery experience with a specialty in contemporary ceramics. Of the works selected, Juror Awards in the amounts of $1,000, $750, $500 and $250 will be presented.
**Each artist is limited to three (3) entries. There is a $40 (USD) non-refundable fee, for up to three (3) entries. Payments must be submitted online at the time of application.**
Exhibition dates: February 4 – May 6, 2017 | Exhibition on view at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
