Submit Art to Juried Exhibit
HI Craftsmen News Release
Held annually since 1967, the Hawaii Craftsmen Annual Statewide Exhibition features the finest traditional and contemporary craft from across the state of Hawaii. This year, the juror will be Beth C. McLaughlin, Artistic Director and Chief Curator at Fuller Craft Museum. The juror will be visiting each island to make public presentations and to select the very best work to be included in the exhibition.
Online registration runs from Aug. 1-31 and Molokai intake and public presentation will be on Sept. 6. Notice of acceptance will be on Sept. 14.
This year, HC expects over $11,000 in awards to be designated by our juror. Specific awards will be posted on the HC website as they are confirmed. Accepted work will be photographed and featured in a full color catalog available in print and electronic versions. To see examples and for a free download from past years, visit the HC website.
Artists residing in Hawaii are invited to enter traditional or non-traditional crafts. The exhibition is open to residents of Hawaii for artworks in the categories of clay, fiber, glass, wood, metal, stone and mixed media. Unless they have a strong three-dimensional quality, or directly relate to the practice of craft, painting and photography are not eligible. Entries must be of original design and created within the last two years. Artworks previously exhibited at the Downtown Art Center, or in any juried exhibition on Oahu are ineligible.
The exhibition will take place at Downtown Art Center in Honolulu from Sept. 30 to Oct. 28, with an opening reception on Sept. 30 from 6 to 8 p.m.
