The Greater Denton Arts Council proudly presents the 32nd annual 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. The exhibition celebrates the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media. Since 2017, the exhibition has expanded to include works by international artists. Approximately 70 works will be selected by juror Janet McCall, Executive Director of the Contemporary Craft, for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in Denton, Texas.
