The opening reception for the 43rd Annual Mid-States Crafts Exhibition is this Saturday, December 14, 2013, from 6:30-8:30 Eastern time at the Evansville Musuem of Art, History, and Science. I'm mentioning this because I have a piece juried into this show, and I'm really excited about it. The dates for the exhibition itself are December 15, 2013-January 12, 2014. The following information comes from the Evansville Museum of Art, History, and Science's website:
The 43rd MID-STATES CRAFT EXHIBITION will be featured in the Main Gallery. Open to artists residing in the six states of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and Missouri, the competition will feature ceramics, glass, textiles, metalwork, wood, and mixed media.
The juror for this year’s competition was Julie Farr, executive director of the Houston (Texas) Center for Contemporary Craft. A non-profit arts organization founded in 2001 to advance education about the process, product and history of craft, HCCC has emerged as an important cultural and educational resource for Houston and the Southwest – one of the few venues in the country dedicated exclusively to craft at the highest level.
Take a look at the website for the museum if you'd like more information; and if you get a chance to see the exhibition, let me know what you think of it.
