The Greater Denton Arts Council presents the 34th annual Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition. Materials: Hard + Soft began in 1987 in Denton, Texas as a celebration of the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media including: clay, fiber, glass, metal, paper, wood, or any combination of craft media.

This year’s juror is Pablo Barrera of the Oklahoma Contemporary. Barrera will select pieces for exhibition at the Greater Denton Arts Council in Denton, Texas from February 5-May 8, 2021. All selected works will also be included in our online exhibition and store and a printed catalog.

Juror’s award prizes of $250, $500, $750, and $1,000 will be handed out.
There is a $30 entry fee that covers up to 3 entries.
Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2020.
