Florida CraftArt was founded more than 70 years ago as a statewide organization to recognize and document the artistic and cultural significance of Florida’s skilled crafts. The exceptional collection assembled over five decades celebrates the beauty and creativity of handmade works in ceramics, wood, fiber, metals, jewelry, glass, and mixed media.
This exhibition features examples by distinguished Florida craft artists including Laura Militzer Bryant, Kimberli Burns Cummings, John Eckert, Christine Federighi, Nneka Jones, John Mascoll, and Duncan McClellan.
