The Maria V. Howard Arts Center at the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences in Rocky Mount, NC, opened its Handcrafted: A Juried Exhibition of Ceramics, Fiber, Glass, Metal, Wood, an established national juried craft exhibition attracting a variety of traditional, mixed, and new craft media from across the United States on Sunday. The exhibition will run through May 20, 2012.
I am thrilled to have a several pieces in the show. DH and I saw the Handcrafted exhibition last year and were very impressed with the quality of fine craft exhibited. I decided then to enter the competition for this year, knowing that it would be tough but worth it.
The arts center is acquiring a very fine collection of fine art and craft. Some lucky person was awarded Best of Show and a Purchase Award on Sunday. Wish we could have been there to see it.
The three pieces below are in the exhibition.
