Executive Director Wayne Art Center Wayne, PA

Director, Provenance Research Exchange Program, Smithsonian Institution

I am honored to jury CraftForms for a second time, and to return to Wayne Art Center whose dedication to artists working in craft materials is to be celebrated. Art and culture are about excellence and long-term investment in our humanity and the world we inhabit. At a time when many want things to be done as quickly and cheaply as possible, this exhibition visually broadcasts an anecdote to this short-sided approach. Great art slows us down, makes us take notice and question what we are seeing, what does it mean, why does this matter; and, how does it connect to our lives and each other?

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.

A theme that emerges in the work in CraftForms 2019 is the precariousness of our lives today, especially in relation to fragility and resilience. Some of the titles of the works of art, or the ideas and functions that are addressed and/ or expressed, involve rethinking and relooking at reality, materiality, and spirituality—who are we, what are we becoming? Ceramic, glass, fiber, metal, wood, and paper works with titles such as Social Disorder, House of Cards, Snared, Disconnected, Spine Brooch, Dark Cloud, and I Can’t Be Your Superwoman, together with Intangible Spring, Horizon Fringe, and Invasive, are conceptual ideas powerfully “voiced” through the making of beautifully crafted objects. For me, both the work and the vital role Wayne Art Center plays in this community give me hope. The materiality of craft and the making of objects by hand, through traditional and innovative tools and techniques, teach us some of the most profound and beautiful lessons of life. We desire purposeful lives. The materials the artists have chosen to work in are hand-crafted into works of art—transcending the sum of many parts. We may have ideas, we may have great skill, but a great work of art is great because it embodies universal ideas that lift us up, rather than push us down. Finally, an exciting aspect about this exhibition series is that you can acquire one of these works of art, to live with and share long term, while supporting an artist and Wayne Art Center to continue their work. Enjoy this feast for the eyes and the soul!

This year, we are delighted to welcome back Jane Milosch, Director of the Provenance Research Exchange Program in the Office of International Relations at the Smithsonian Institution. Formerly chief curator at the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Jane served as juror for CraftForms 2010. From a pool of over 700 entries, she narrowed her selections to 88 exquisitely executed works in ceramics, fiber, glass, metal, mixed media, wood, and 3-D printing technologies, many which push boundaries and challenge traditions.

Jane Milosch is an internationally recognized curator and expert in 20th-century and contemporary art, craft, and design, and their intersections with science and new technologies. As the founding director of the Provenance Research Initiative at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., she advises on WWII-era provenance research, cultural heritage projects, and international museum training programs. Milosch was previously Senior Program Officer for Art at the Smithsonian, leading pan-Institutional art programs and new interdisciplinary initiatives and strategic planning efforts at the Smithsonian’s eight art museums, and her earlier appointments include curatorial positions at the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, the Figge Art Museum, and in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art and Design at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Milosch studied ceramics and art history in the US and in Munich, Germany, where she also worked as a managing editor for Prestel Art books. A graduate of the Getty Leadership Institute for museum professionals, she lectures and publishes widely on provenance research and contemporary art and craft, and holds an honorary professorship in the School of Culture and Creative Arts, University of Glasgow.

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”.

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. 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,
