Craft Forms Testimonials

The Wayne Art Center’s annual international juried exhibition, CraftForms exemplifies quality. For more than a decade I have had the pleasure of participating in several CraftForms exhibitions. Three-dimensional artworks are by nature difficult to handle and display.  I am always impressed with the selection of an exceptional juror, the staff’s attention to detail, the diversity of materials and participants, the fine installation and presentation of the art works and the associated publications and publicity. It is also gratifying to witness the greater community’s engagement in celebrating the exhibition. They make it look easy at the Wayne Art Center and it is certainly appreciated.

“I’m so happy we came to see CraftForms and to see the vendors. We had a wonderful time! It was great to see you and all the amazing talent in every square foot of the building…CraftForms is MOMA worthy!!  WAC is truly a gorgeous space with a wonderful vibe with so much creative energy.   It’s a monumental effort to pull everything together. Congratulations on a successful and beautiful event.”

“Just want to say, what a wonderful opening and party for CraftForms 2017.  It is a beautiful exhibit and I am honored to have my work included.  You did a fantastic job hanging the show.  Everything has enough space, and can be seen to its full advantage.  Not easy.  Thank you also so very much for all your help and support.  It is greatly appreciated.  I hope that there is another opportunity to work together in the not so distant future!”

—Mindy Horn, CraftForms 2017 Artist

“Full of anticipation I went to the Wayne Art Center to see the just opened CraftForms 2017 and its companion show Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Women in Glass. These are monumentally beautiful shows, curated by renowned experts and examples chosen from 780 submissions by 429 local, national and international artists, from as far away as Japan, Taiwan and Israel. Both exhibits confirm that contemporary creativity shows no bounds in the choice of craft materials or the manner of creation.

—Elisabeth Braun, CraftForms 2017 Attendee

CraftForms has been consistently a strong show and an excellent experience for me as an artist. The team is highly professional, and they do a great job communicating to help organize the artists and to promote the show to other artists and potential collectors. And it is beautifully installed and presented. I have had three experiences working with the WAC and each have been a pleasure.”

—Gerri Spilka, CraftForms 2016 Artist

“As a craft artist who exhibits regularly in galleries and museums internationally, I’m honored to have participated in several CraftForms exhibitions over the past few years. I find CraftForms to be one of the best regional exhibitions of fine craft in America, annually featuring some of the best work in international craft. They always host some of the nations most respected directors and curators to adjudicate a select body of work for exhibition. Whether you’re an artist, a collector, or just one who admires fine craft, don’t miss the next CraftForms exhibition.”
