about the exhibition

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.

call for entry: Ninth Annual Cup Show: Form and Function

Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery is hosting its annual juried exhibition
that explores the idea of the drinking vessel. The focus of the exhibit is on the
function and concept of the drinking vessel, including its relation to history, politics,
craft, technology, utility, and narrative. It is a survey of the wide variety of approaches
to contemporary ceramics through the lens of the most intimate and accessible vessel,
the cup. This year the exhibit is part of the National Clay Week and will have an “interactive” component, which will take place on October 11.
