43rd Annual Contemporary Crafts

Textile artwork in the 43rd Contemporary Crafts exhibition.

The 43rd Annual Contemporary Crafts exhibition is up and running at the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum in Mesa, Arizona.

“Highlighting the finest in contemporary crafts from across the country, Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum’s Annual Contemporary Crafts exhibition has become a benchmark for innovation and quality. Representative of traditional craft mediums including ceramics, fibers, basketry, metals, wood, glass, jewelry, paper making and book arts, this exhibition showcases 45 artworks by 36 artists, representing 15 states.”

I am honored that my artwork, Leaf Stack #22, was chosen to be included in this exhibition. Beth McLaughlin, Artistic Director and Chief Curator of Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts juried the show. This artwork has been in several other exhibitions in the past, as well. It was in the Color exhibition at 3 Square Art Gallery in Colorado and the Decatur Arts Festival Exhibition in Georgia. In addition, it was displayed in my past solo exhibition at the Metro Gallery in Reno, NV. I am excited it is in another venue and still making the rounds.

The exhibition runs through April 24, 2022. If you are in the area, I hope you are able to stop by. If you are unable to see it in person, you may view the artwork of the 43rd Annual Contemporary Crafts exhibition in the digital catalog on Mesa Contemporary Art Museum’s site.
