Presented in partnership with an ANONYMOUS FOUNDATION

The 43rd MID-STATES CRAFT EXHIBITION will be featured in the Main Gallery. Open to artists residing in the six states of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and Missouri, the competition will feature ceramics, glass, textiles, metalwork, wood, and mixed media.
Juror for this year’s competition will be Julie Farr, executive director of the Houston (Texas) Center for Contemporary Craft. A non-profit arts organization founded in 2001 to advance education about the process, product and history of craft, HCCC has emerged as an important cultural and educational resource for Houston and the Southwest – one of the few venues in the country dedicated exclusively to craft at the highest level.
Nearly $10,000 in purchase and merit awards, underwritten by Evansville individuals, corporations, foundations, and philanthropic organizations, will be presented at the December 14 awards evening.
Mid-States Craft Juror Julie Farr will host a presentation on the 2013 Mid-States Craft Exhibition on Tuesday, November 5, at 7 p.m. in the Museum’s Old Gallery.
