The 2018 Biennial Members Exhibition celebrates the diversity of talents in the Museum’s membership base. This biennial exhibition is an important opportunity for young, mid-career, and veteran artists to exhibit their work to the Fuller Craft community. Artists both inside and outside of Massachusetts have participated in the past, showcasing stunning works of ceramics, glassware, furniture, textiles, basketry, woodturning, jewelry, and other craft-based media. For this particular exhibition, the museum grants eligibility for works of painting and photography as well. Video and internet-based works of art are the only media ineligible from consideration. In the past, the opening reception for this exhibition has been particularly successful at bringing together communities of artists that are vital to the Fuller Craft Museum mission.
This exhibition is open to current Members of Fuller Craft Museum, and each member may submit up to 3 entries at $20 per entry. Those artists wishing to submit work, but who are not Fuller Craft Museum members, can purchase a membership here https://fullercraft.org/join-give/membership/ and then follow up by applying for the exhibition in the Online Juried Shows link below.
