MAINE MASTER CRAFT ARTIST AWARD: HONOR. RECOGNITION. EXCELLENCE
In 2009, the Maine Crafts Association began to honor individual Maine craft artists each year by awarding Master Crafts Artist recognition for a body of work that is exceptional. This award will confer the prestige and acknowledgement that comes with having the artist’s work achieve a distinguishing mark of excellence.
2018 MASTER CRAFT ARTIST AWARD
The 2018 recipients were selected by Andres Verzosa, an art advocate, collector, curator, and writer with a distinguished history of service to Maine artists and arts organizations. Verzosa will talk about his process and selections during the award presentation.
The 2018 Awardees will be included in the Master Craft Artist Award Ten Year Anniversary Exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum in 2019.
