This annual competition and exhibition of contemporary crafts was started in 1987 and is now in it's 28th year. Recognized nationally, Materials: Hard & Soft attracts hundreds of entries from every state in the union. Nationally recognized jurors select the show from slides and then award $5000 in prize money. The juror has always selected the winning pieces on-site. A catalog is printed. Many of the artists seen in the Materials exhibitions have been featured in national publications such as American Craft.


Works produced in any of the craft media: clay, fiber, glass, metal, paper, wood, or any combination of craft media, are acceptable. Entries must be the complete work of the submitted artist. Kits or commercially designed works will not be accepted.

All work must have been completed within the past two years (2012-2014) and not previously exhibited at the Center for Visual Arts. Artists must reside in the United States or its possessions.


There is a $40 non-refundable fee, for up to three (3) entries.
