Juror: Carr McCuiston
Since 1997 Carr has owned and operated Signature, originally known as The Signature Shop & Gallery, in Atlanta, GA. Carr worked in
the gallery off and on spending nearly 20 years in tutelage of founder Blanche Reeves. Carr completed her Bachelor Fine of Arts
degree at Auburn University and then went on to study for a Master’s Degree in Art Education at Georgia State University. She has
juried numerous national craft shows including the artist selection panel for the American Craft Council and was honored by the ACC as
a Style Maker in 2013.
The gallery, entering its 53rd year, shows a broad range of distinctive objects made by hand that are thoughtful, innovative and reflect a
passion for materials and for individuality. Signature promotes the importance of craft practice and fosters the appreciation of the
handmade and of the individual maker. They strive to develop a broader appreciation of handmade one-off pieces and expand the
reach and understanding of contemporary studio art and its intrinsic relationship with design.
