The show includes functional and conceptual craft across a variety of media. Bryce Brisco, ceramics; Ellie Richards, wood; Amanda Ross, fibers; Linda Tien, exhibitions; Chad Cully, glass; and Jason York, metals, will display their work in the Craft Center’s Gallery Two.
The artist in residence program at the Craft Center gives emerging professional artists a chance to develop their craft. Appointments range from one to three years in each of the studios: clay, glass, metals, wood and fibers, as well as a resident to help with exhibitions. The paid positions give artists with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, or its equivalent, a chance to mentor college students and develop their talents in the Craft Center’s facilities. Resident artists are selected from a national pool of applicants.
The Craft Center galleries are open to the public daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
