Friday evening December 5th, the Wayne Art Center located on Philadelphia’s prestigious Main Line will host a Gala Preview event and opening for the 20th anniversary of the Craft Forms 2014 international juried exhibition. I am thrilled to be one of the chosen artists to show my metalwork. This year’s exhibit will showcase the artwork of ninety-nine artists selected from over four hundred applicants worldwide. Jurors David R. McFadden, Chief Curator Emeritus of the Museum of Arts and Design, New York City, NY and Bruce W. Pepich, Executive Director and Curator of Collections of the Racine Art Museum, Racine, WI selected the works to be on display in the Davenport Gallery at Wayne Art Center.
My Widget Locket #5: Homage to Vanity will be on display alongside the work of such notable metalsmiths and jewelers, such as Helen Shirk (California), Marjorie Simon (Pennsylvania), Teresa Faris (Wisconsin), Ana M. Lopez (Texas), Jennifer Crupi (New Jersey) and Sandra Enterline (California) among several others. Additionally, other craft genres will be well-represented, such as artists working in clay, fiber, glass, wood and 3-D printing. I am quite anxious to see the work of all of these stellar artists in-person and in this case, only a short drive from home.
If you live near the Main Line suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or have plans to travel to suburban Philadelphia for the upcoming holidays, I would encourage anyone to stop by the Wayne Art Center galleries and see this exhibit in-person. The gallery will host a 20th Anniversary Gala Opening from 6 – 10 PM on Friday, December 5th (call 610-688-3553 for tickets) with juror awards announced that evening. Craft Forms runs through January 31st, 2015 at The Davenport Gallery, located inside the Wayne Art Center at 413 Maplewood Avenue in Wayne, Pennsylvania.
