CraftHiltonHead2022, Art League’s eighth Juried Fine Art Craft Guild Exhibition, will showcase 2- and 3-dimensional fine art craft that encompass exemplary creativity, experimentation and imagination. Nearly 50 artists from the Southeast will be represented, with cash awards totaling more than $3,000.

“This exhibit only occurs once every two years. You won’t want to miss it,” said Kristen McIntosh, Art League general manager. “This is a juried show, so the quality of the pieces is exceptional. We are very fortunate to be able to showcase such talent right here on Hilton Head.”

The judging will be done by Joanna Angell, a fourth-generation artist working in ceramics, printmaking, drawing and painting. Angell has won a number of merit and purchase awards in juried exhibitions and was three times included in the traveling exhibit Palmetto Hands. Her work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections including the President’s Collection at the University of Georgia.

This exclusive presentation of a wide variety of imaginative crafts will be on display and for sale Oct. 4 through Nov 12. An awards reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 5, when winners will be announced. Refreshments will be provided.

The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

The Art League gallery is open daily, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, and and 90 minutes before every Arts Center performance.
