The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft has signed on three new crew members: artist Miriam Mendoza is the new Education Coordinator, and will manage the center’s artist residency program. New Curatorial Fellow Susie Silbert just completed her master’s degree at Bard, where she focused on craft history. Previously, she was the business manager, archivist and registrar for studio-glass pioneer Mark Peiser. Woodworker and former artist-in-residence at HCCC John Van Domelen will be the new Facilities & Operations Manager. In addition to his work at HCCC, Van Domelen works as a lab tech, grows orchids, and wrangles five cats.
