Hand Bloom

The DUMA 2nd Craft Invitational

June 27, 2020 - October 10, 2020

2020 Craft

DuMA presents a new exhibition highlighting fine craft, with an emphasis on traditional materials handled in unexpected and innovative ways. Over 70 handcrafted works by a select group of regionally-based craftspeople working in ceramic, glass, wood, paper, and metal will be featured. The 2nd Craft Invitational would not be possible without the curatorial team of Delores Fortuna, Maureen Bardusk, Paul Opperman, and Carole Speliç.

The exhibition will run through October 10, 2020.

Following the first invitational in 2018, this encore exhibition continues to recognize the many talented craft artists in our region – more than we could bring to a single exhibition. The 2020 Craft Invitational builds upon the first exhibition, presenting a new group of exceptional regional artists.

They include: Ali Kauss, Amy Arnold and Kelsey Sauber Olds, Andrew Shea, Cory McCrory, Darlys Ewoldt, Don Friedlich, Ernest Miller, Gordon Browning, James Pearce, John Martinson, Judith Kinghorn, Julie McLaughlin, Kevin Kowaleski and Justin Mosling, Kristin Garnant and v.skip willits, Linda Kelen, Melissa Jay Craig, Mitchell Spain, Rich Robertson, and Rick Hintze.
