Making It in Crafts III -- Lafayette, Indiana

I am absolutely thrilled to be included in the invitational exhibition -- Making It in Crafts III -- May 12 to August 27, 2017 -- at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette in Indiana. I delivered three pieces in person last Tuesday and met the guest curator, Jim Sondgeroth.  

The opening reception is Friday, May 12 from 6:30 to 8:30, with remarks by Jim Sondgeroth at 7 pm.

Making It in Crafts III features 140 works by 51 artists (clay, glass, metal, wood working and fiber) from 25 states plus Canada and Australia. I'm in very good company. From the looks of the catalog, the show should be stunning. You can get a peek at some of the other artists' on the brochure posted on my Exhibitions/Events page.

This exhibition will feature 140 works of art by 51 prominent professional craft artists (clay, glass, metal, wood-working and fiber), from 25 states plus Canada and Australia.  These artists make their living by creating and selling fine art crafts.  Many of the most renowned artisans are juried participants in the most prestigious art shows in the U.S.  Including Chicago’s SOFA at Navy Pier; Grand Rapids’ Art Prize; and Ann Arbor’s Summer Art Fair.  Guest Curator, Jim Sondgeroth has personally selected and invited each artist.  This unique exhibit expands on the first two Making it in Crafts exhibits shown at the Art Museum in 2011 and 2014.  It is one of the most exciting and comprehensive arts and crafts shows to be presented in the Midwest.
