Jurors: Joan Hutton and Christine Spangler
The theme, Three-Dimensional Views, inspired objects from the whimsical to the elegant. Of the pieces selected for special mention, the jurorswere impressed by the extraordinary craftsmanship and elegant forms of Joy's baskets, the inventive felt flower pins of Tarkhan, and the panoramic variety of motifs on Miller's wrap. The guest juror, Spangler, especially noted the fresh design impact of the natural prints on scarves, cards and other wearables (Bohlen and Stevens' work). There is a lot of choice for spring visitors to our gallery.
