Craft Forms 2008, the International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Crafts, will be on display at the Wayne Art Center December 5, 2008 − January 24, 2009. This eagerly anticipated exhibition, celebrating its fourteenth year, is dedicated to enhancing the public's awareness of fine contemporary craft while providing a venue for established and emerging artists to share their creative endeavors. Craft Forms has earned a rapidly growing reputation as one of the nation’s most recognized contemporary craft exhibitions. The finest works of ceramics, wood, fiber, metal, glass and mixed medium are featured, supporting the Center’s mission of expanding the public’s awareness of fine contemporary crafts, and significantly benefiting all educational programs for children and adults. “We are excited to present artists from all over the country and abroad,” said Nancy Campbell, Executive Director.
The juror of Craft Forms 2008 is Michael W. Monroe, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Bellevue Arts Museum, WA, who has been involved with the craft and design field for more than 40 years. With more than 700 entries, Monroe selected 108 works from 93 artists from 27 states. Over $4,000 in prizes will be awarded.
