Materials Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition at the Greater Denton Arts Council’s Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, Denton. Dates: February 7 – May 9, 2020.
Via the Greater Denton Arts Council: “Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition, began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. Now in its 33rd year, the exhibition shows the top national and international artists as we celebrate the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media.
“This year’s call for artists drew over 1,032 submissions from 16 countries around the world and 42 states. Juror Beth McLaughlin selected 72 works for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center including works from 26 states and 3 countries including Honk Kong, Canada, and the United States in varying media including metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, fiber, and mixed media.
“This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts and the City of Denton. A catalog and online verison of the exhibit are available at dentonarts.com/materialshardandsoft.”
