A Tennessee Craft Exhibition

June 1-30, 2018
Closing Reception:  June 30, 2018; 3pm-5pm @ Carroll Reece Museum on East Tennessee State University Campus,

Tennessee Craft, a statewide nonprofit of 52 years, connects emerging and experienced craft artists and the public with resources and opportunities to make their mark on our state’s handmade legacy.

The exhibition is open to original works of craft by artists ages 18 years and older who are current residents of East Tennessee, membership of Tennessee Craft no required. 

J U R O R: Our Juror is Dick Nelson, a gallery owner for over 20yrs in East Tennessee. He says about Craft Art: “It is rare for Craft Art to be accidental. Observers may look at the work and think they can do it, but wouldn’t take the time to. If they did they would realize that it is a honed skill.”
