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 CraftForms 2019.

Craft Forms Sponsorships benefit Wayne Art Center’s exhibitions, educational and outreach programs.

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. 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.

Listing as of print deadline.

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 CraftForms, 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 self-taught, and requires only a single object rather than a body of work for an exhibition or sale.

When I am asked to serve as a juror for exhibitions such as Wayne Art Center’s 25th Annual CraftForms, 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.

International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Fine Craft

It is with great pride that I welcome you to join us in celebrating CraftForms 2019, the 25th International Exhibition of Contemporary Craft. This year marks an important milestone in the advancement of CraftForms’ mission to enhance awareness of contemporary craft. From its humble beginnings, CraftForms has evolved from an opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work to a broadly recognized exhibition that draws talent from all over the globe. Acclaimed for its ability to attract both emerging and established artists as well as highly esteemed jurors, CraftForms showcases the best of contemporary craft in a region richly known for its “craft capital”. This year, we are delighted to welcome back Jane Milosch, Founder and Director of the Provenance Research Initiative in the Office of the Under Secretary for History, Art and Culture at the Smithsonian Institution. Formerly chief curator at the Renwick Museum, Jane served as juror for CraftForms 2011. From a pool of over 700 entries, Jane narrowed her selections to 88 exquisitely executed works in ceramics, fiber, glass, metal, mixed media, wood, and 3-D printing, many which push boundaries and challenge traditions. We would also like to recognize the distinguished CraftForms jurors who have afforded Wayne Art Center the opportunity to bring contemporary craft to the forefront of our community; Elisabeth Agro, Nora Atkinson, Gail M. Brown, Sandra Brownlee, Syd Carpenter, Stefano Catalani, Sharon Church, Jimmy Clark, William Daley, Lloyd Herman, Alec Karros, Gretchen Keyworth, Mark Leach, Ron Lobaco, Bruce Metcalf, Michael Monroe, Richard Moyer, Melissa Post, Perry Allen Price, Richard Reinhardt, Paul Smith, David McFadden, Bruce Pepich, Cindy Straus and Lena Vigna The meaningful relationships forged through their involvement, generosity of time and expertise have been greatly valued and contributed to elevating Wayne Art Center’s standing in the world of contemporary craft. For this we are forever grateful. As we celebrate this special year, we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to those who have been instrumental in shaping CraftForms into such a highly respected event. It is through the dedicated efforts and support of the Board of Directors, staff, sponsors, patrons, volunteers and the thousands of visitors who eagerly anticipate and view this exhibition each year that Wayne Art Center has become a cherished cultural resource in our community. A special word of thanks to Patti Hallowell, Exhibition Coordinator and CraftForms 2019 Chair, Franz Rabauer for their passion, commitment, and tireless efforts. Happy 25th Anniversary CraftForms 2019. We look forward to another 25 years of enriching our community through this much loved endeavor! With Gratitude,
