Sometimes two heads (in this case two galleries) are better than one! Join us as we open our newest exhibition, NOW! NEW WORK, NEW ARTISTS, in collaboration with ArtsWorcester, a membership organization representing the arts of Greater Worcester.
"Both the Craft Center and ArtsWorcester want to give visibility to quality, and to create a marketplace for artists," says Honee Hess, Executive Director of the Craft Center. "And what a pleasure it has been to discover so many younger talents in the area-it bodes well for Worcester."
The exhibit was juried by Roger Hankins, Director of the Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross. Prizes will be announced simultaneously at both galleries at 6:30 the evening of the opening reception.
All artists are under the age of 40 and reside or work in Central Massachusetts. They include Loretta Adams, Jennifer Amenta, Jessikah Ann, Ryan Arruda, Tess Barbato, Amanda Bastien, Matthew Burgos, Melanie Christopher, Deanna Degon, James Dye, Katie Dye, Christian Farren, Sharon Freed, David Gates, Amanda Gibson, Leslie Graff, Ben Gragen, Marissa Grossi, Katie Lee Haley, Meaghan Hardy-Lavoie, Anne Harris, Alisa Harrison, Scarlett Hoey, Sarah Hudson, Molly Jackson, Rey Jay, Timothy Carney Johnson, Nicholas Kantarelis, Nastasia Lawton-Sticklor, Marybeth Lensel, Sarah Margolin, Kate Murphy, Nina Nguyen, Sean O'Gara, Irina Parfenova, Desiree Petty, Cesar Rodrigues, Emily Sandagata, Robb Sandagata, Brittany Severance, Justin Sliwoski, John Wesley Small, Rebecca Smith, Pamela Stolz, Joanne Stowell, Terrasa Ulm, Hank VonHellion, Lauren Walsh, and Sarah Williams.

The Worcester Center for Crafts' Artists in Residence Program is a way to "sustain craft" and insure the next generation of artists carrying on craft traditions. Open to aspiring artists in clay, glass, and metals (and those who might work across more than one medium), the Worcester Center for Crafts' Artists in Residence Program is designed to support the growth of pre-professional artists. Residents are chosen through a competitive process and are with the Center for 1 to 2 years.
