MATERIALS: HARD + SOFT INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY CRAFT COMPETITION AND EXHIBITION
Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. Now in its 30th year, the exhibition opens to international artists as we celebrate the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media. Each year approximately 70 works from the hundreds submitted are selected by an esteemed juror for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center. 

The 2017 Call for Entries is now closed. The 2018 Call for Entries will re-open summer 2017.
