Florida CraftArt Members’ Show: Contemporary Craft at its Finest 2020
This juried exhibition showcases the best of handcrafted work by the members of Florida CraftArt. From across Florida, 40 artists created 70 pieces from intricate jewelry to glass sculptures. All of the stunning works may be viewed in an online exhibition book which also includes the biographies and statements from the artists.
During the virtual opening on May 8, Ms. Shaeffler-Murphy presented the winners of the show’s judging. Best of Show was awarded to Gulfport-based artist Suzy Pease for her dynamic ceramic sculpture, “Hare of Humanity: Lockdown,” a timely sculpture representing a rabbit eager to spring into action during containment. This piece metaphorically mirrors the anticipation and impatience we all feel during this uncertain time of quarantine.
A recording of the virtual opening as well as the “Members’ Show: Contemporary Craft at its Finest 2020” Exhibition Book may be viewed and purchased on FloridaCraftArt.org. All works featured in the exhibition are available for purchase on the website as well, they can be found under “Shop.”
