Craft Biennial: A Review of Northwest Art & Craft

Deadline: May 25, 2007 (Postmark)

CRAFT BIENNIAL: A Review of Northwest Art & Craft
Exhibition reception
August 2, 2007 4:00-7:00pm

The fifth in a series of biennial exhibitions devoted to handmade work in the Northwest, this show seeks submissions which will demonstrate a broad spectrum of
craft. As an educational institution committed to both craftsmanship and intellectual inquiry, Oregon College of Art & Craft provides a unique opportunity to examine the state of craft in Oregon and Washington.

With this exhibition, we want to stimulate artistic excellence in craft and encourage artists to explore issues as well as further their creative expressions.
