Few opportunities, other than the open juried exhibition, exist in the field of contemporary craft to engage with the current interests of its constituents. Museum exhibitions must be planned years in advance, with artists and objects that are, to a large extent, known quantities. Even the commission of new work comes with some sense of the final product. In smaller shows such as Craft Forms, one has the opportunity to see new work by voices familiar and unfamiliar. This venue provides an egalitarian opportunity available to artists with academic training, as well as the selftaught, and requires only a single object rather than a body of work for an exhibition or sale.

Executive Director Houston Center for Contemporary Craft Houston, TX

When I am asked to serve as a juror for exhibitions such as Wayne Art Center’s 24th Annual Craft Forms, I readily admit that I am a glutton for punishment. This is an adept phrase, as I am insatiable for such opportunities and admittedly rarely turn down the request. Nonetheless, it is a difficult and not inconsequential task, and one for which there is no correct action.

The virtual manner in which objects are selected leaves something to be desired, of course, and is certainly no comparison to a studio visit or other opportunity to view a work in person. However, the occasion to see a remarkable breadth of work outweigh the negatives. Without fail, every show presents more outstanding work worthy of inclusion than can be physically incorporated into the exhibition. Too frequently a work of minute detail or subtlety may be overlooked when juxtaposed with bold work easily reproduced in photographs.

presented by

Wayne Art Center

For my own humble contribution to this series, I am drawn to those works which undoubtedly speak skill of their makers, yes, but most importantly ask questions of the viewer and challenge our understanding of an object’s conception and creation. Any juried exhibition is only as strong as the work entered, and it is a testament to the reputation and value of this series to the field seen in the remarkable pieces on view. It was my pleasure to be a part of Craft Forms 2018.

Director’s Statement Nancy Campbell

Executive Director Wayne Art Center Wayne, PA

Since our founding in 1930, Wayne Art Center has grown into a vital cultural resource, welcoming artists from all over the world, who share their passion and commitment to the visual arts with our local community. As we have matured, we have experienced periods of great harmony and economic strength, as well as times of tremendous discord. In fact, the global unrest pervasive today is arguably the worst in history. Wayne Art Center takes great pride and responsibility in remaining a positive constant in the lives of our students, our artists, our members and the community at large. Bringing Craft Forms to this community year after year allows us to celebrate our reach as an institution and our interconnectedness as a culture, despite the times. Now in its 24th year, Craft Forms has also evolved. What began as a modest exhibition of local artisans has become one of the premiere contemporary craft exhibitions in the United States. Today Craft Forms is dedicated to enhancing the public’s awareness of fine contemporary craft while providing a venue for established and emerging artists to share their creative endeavors. As such, we continue to attract some of the most well-known and respected professionals in the fine craft world. This year, we were fortunate to engage Perry Allen Price, Executive Director, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, who graciously accepted our invitation to jury Craft Forms 2018. We are grateful for his efforts in selecting a diverse range of work for this year’s exhibition. Mr. Price selected 109 works from a pool of more than 800 entries, submitted by more than 400 artists representing 31 states and five countries. We are equally delighted to present CAST: Art and Objects, cocurated by Jen Townsend and Renee Zettle-Sterling, artists and authors of CAST: Art and Objects Made Using Humanity’s Most Transformational Process. Their presentation of casting and how it transcends all aspects of the world we live in, compliments Craft Forms’ breadth. Both exhibitions substantiate our mission: to afford artists and the broader population an interdisciplinary venue to explore, share and learn, while fostering a sense of community for arts education. We are proud to participate in a shared role in introducing new artists to Wayne Art Center and communicating their journey and the art of making, which is so crucial in a world seemingly so removed from our roots.
