Juxtapoz Magazine – Thirty-fifth Annual Tough Materials + Soft Invitation to Arts and Crafts Accepting Applications Now

The Council on Major Arts Denton is proud to present the 35th annual “Material: Hard + Soft” International Contemporary Crafts Competition and Exhibition. Recognized as one of the nation’s premier craft fairs, Materials: Hard + Soft was started in 1987 and originally started by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. The gallery celebrates the evolving field of contemporary crafts and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of select media: clay, fibres, glass, metal, paper, wood, or any combination of artisanal media. The gallery is open to local and international artists. The 35th Anniversary Gallery is expanding two galleries, both the Meadows Gallery and Gough Gallery at Patterson Appleton Center for the Arts in downtown Denton, Texas from May 27 to August 27, 2022. The artworks will be included in a print catalog and an online exhibition. The deadline for entry is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, February 13.

She holds an MA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BA from San Diego State University. Aguiñiga is the founder of Art Made Between Opposite Sides, http://www.ambosproject.com. Represented by the Volume Gallery in Chicago. Learn more about Aguiñiga at tanyaaguiniga.com.
