Craft Forms 2002

December 6, 2002 – January 20, 2003

From the record-breaking 729 craft entries that were submitted this year, renowned juror, Lloyd E. Herman, Founding Director of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, selected 78 works from 44 states and British Columbia, Canada. Many of the works featured in the Wayne Art Center’s Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Gallery will represent an eclectic mix of work that stretches craft beyond traditional interpretations. According to Lloyd Herman, Craft Forms 2002 is “a great exhibition with marvelous diversity.” 

While the Craft Forms 2002 exhibition features artists from all over North America, of special note are the artists from the greater Philadelphia region, who are represented in this show. Andy Buchanan of Chester Springs, PA is a wooden box maker who creates functional and decorative designs.  His piece, “Silver Top Boxes” will appear at Craft Forms.  A graduate of Tyler School of

Art and the University of the Arts, Tom Rupnicki of Media, PA makes large glass blown vessels, and will display “”Kiss” at this juried exhibition.  Margery F. Cooper of Narberth, PA, a silversmith who designs and creates both Judaica and jewelry, has studied metals and design at Fleisher Academy, The University of the Arts, and Moore College of Art and Design.  Her “Hidden Treasure” will appear at the show.  Bette Uscott-Woolsey of Bala Cynwyd, PA, fabricates quilted works bridging the gap between traditional needle textile arts and painting.  Her piece, “Quilted IX,” will hang at Craft Forms 2002.  Other artists from the area include Gina Bosworth of Wilmington, DE; Valerie Jo Coulson of Pequea, PA; Fuyuko Matsubara of Indiana, PA; Jessica Smith of Philadelphia; and Georgette L. Veeder, Adamstown, PA.
