Opening Friday February 3rd 6-8 at the Greater Denton Arts Council
The Greater Denton Arts Council proudly presents the 30th annual Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition. Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. The exhibition celebrates the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media. In this anniversary year, we are thrilled to be partnering with the National Endowment for the Arts to expand this national exhibition to now include international artists. Approximately 70 works will be selected by an esteemed juror for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in Denton, Texas. In 2017, we are thrlled to expand the exhibition to 93 individual works from Denmark, Singapore, Sweden, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.
